Highball Halloween 2014

This is one of the if not THE biggest Halloween party in the nation and as of the past few years it has expanded from one to two consecutive nights of revelry.  It’s costumes, fashion, food trucks, a 5K race with runners in costume, and bands all in the Short North Art District in Columbus, Ohio.   What’s not to love about all of that?   As the saying goes, at Highball you are what you wear and oh the things that were worn.  The street party is in it’s seventh year but it was my first time attending.  The event starts in the early evening before the sun goes down with things really turning up after dark until some time after midnight.

There were all ages in attendance with costumes that varied from little girls in their favorite princess outfits to the elaborate costumes that were part of the fashion show contests.  Even though the theme this year was The 80’s, attendees wore what they wanted to in the end regardless of year or species.  The energy was infectious with people coming to enjoy themselves, hang out with friends and family, and to just strut their stuff.  Fortunately, the weather favored the event this year with it staying comfortably cool as the night fell; something I’m sure those in skin baring attire appreciated.

While I didn’t partake in any of the food truck goodies or liquid libations, I did have a grand time dancing in the street and laughing it up with the other revelers.  Next year I’m coming in costume!
