Vinny Rubino spent more than three weeks creating his Halloween costume, a detailed recreation of the Demogorgon monster from the “Stranger Things” Netflix series. That work paid off Saturday night when he took the top prize at Purcellville’s Halloween Block Party.
The event, in its ninth year, always attracts some of the county’s most creative costume designers, who compete for hundreds of dollars in prize money. The town’s 21st Street business district was packed with hundreds of visitors who played games, met with representatives of community organizations and enjoyed food and drinks.
