Halloween At the Racing Tracks




This is how the guys on the horses looked at the Halloween day at the Suffolk downs back in 2010. The original photo story was published in October 2010 in Russian.

There were tons of changes since then.

The Suffolk Downs has been closed for live racing in 2013.

Chidlovski Blog Chidlovski moved to a new platform – from LiveJournal to WordPress this year.

We stopped publications in Russian as our default language and changed it to English.

The only thing that remains the same is the celebration of Halloween itself :-)

Anyway, on October 31, 2015, the good old Suffolk Downs will host the last of the special 3-day festival with live racing this year.

If you love horses, live events outdoor or simply have memories of the Suffolk Downs, it certainly might be a fun place to go! :-)

You talkin' to me?





Not only that these guys can act and perform as Method actors and secretly read Stanislavsky, they also watch movie classics.

“Hi, little fellow!” – I greeted this squirrel in the Belle Isle Marsh last weekend.

“You talkin’ to me?..” – replies little fellow. – “You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me?”


Total re-enactment of the “Taxi Driver” classics 0f 1976 by Martin Scorsese.

He even looks like young Robert De Niro, doesn’t he? :-)
