Also, Batman, Spider-Man, Captain America ... a policeman, a pirate and a witch?
The costumed workers made for quite a sight Tuesday morning standing atop scaffolding outside the Tampa Bay Times building at 490 First Avenue South in downtown St. Petersburg.
The men and woman work for SG 360, a Tampa facility services company that is caulking and cleaning exterior windows on the building.
The costumes are something workers for the company wear every Halloween, said Fernando Reategui Bartra, chief engineer for Lincoln Property Company, which owns the building.
Manuel Sanchez, dressed as Superman, was the only worker to scale the 8-story building in costume. He cleaned windows from a Bosun chair.
Brandon Garcia (Spider-Man) of Tampa and Darrell Demarest (Batman) and Cody Babcock (Captain America) of St. Petersburg changed out of their costumes before ascending atop scaffolds. The others asked not to be named for this story.
The window cleaning began last week and could be completed by the end of this week, Reategui Bartra said. The caulking started two weeks ago and could last through the end of the year.
Any chance they’ll dress up for Christmas? We can hope.
