Halloween Fire in Madison


Halloween Twenty-Thirteen
It was a dark and blustry night on the Shores of Lake Mendota,
in Madison, Wisconsin,and with the sparks flying from two
roaring fireplaces under the Pavillion at Burrows Park,
stalwart fans braved the cold to hear
the Live Bard
recite The Raven and other poems of the macabre.
