Actian Costume Contest

A very diverse yet joyful group of masks including Tuesday Taco, Fortune Teller, Squid, Superman, Bob Marley, Hippie, Mary Poppins, Morphsuit, Top Gun’s Maverick, Dead-Priest-Joker, Walrus, Game of Thrones Melisandre, a Slytherin, and Actian’s People Programs Manager abducted by an alien was sighted marching around the Embarcadero Place in Palo Alto, California, on Tuesday, October 29, cheering and wishing random walkers from the surrounding offices Happy Halloween.

Having completed the Halloween Parade, the crew gathered in the office to vote for the winner of this year’s costume contest. Results were tight – as photos demonstrate, all the costumes were awesome – but we were finally able to elect the top ones:

1st place – Mary Poppins

2nd place – Dead-Priest-Joker

3rd place – Fortune Teller

Congratulations to the winners and Happy Halloween to everybody!
