Our very own Michelle Hlubinka, MAKE’s Educational Director, is quoted in this Daily Californian piece about the celebtrational insanity of Russell Street, in Berkeley, known for it’s elaborate decorations and large, costumed crowds.

Below is one of the yard decorations Michelle’s family put together. Their theme was “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.” I love the Dixie cups for monster teeth.

    Thanks, Dave. Fixed. (And the red will fade from my face any minute now…)

    That yard looks nice with all of the decorations in it! I wish that I could put that many decorations in the yard. But, the neighbors put a straw scarecrow there.
