Babble Does Halloween

The week of Halloween in New York was a supremely tough one. Hurricane Sandy hit hard, leaving behind massive devastation, darkness, and dampened spirits city-wide. For that entire week, Babble’s SoHo office was inaccessible. Our dedicated teams managed to keep things moving remotely, missing our beloved HQ all the while.

When we returned bright and early the following Monday, exchanging storm stories and beyond grateful to see each other. Because a delayed Halloween party is much (!) better than no party at all, we decided to go ahead and celebrate! There’s nothing like kids, candy, costumes, and pumpkins when it comes to a good time. The photos below from Babble’s Pumpkin-Palooza prove that Babble does Halloween the right way!
