This past weekend Columbus, Ohio hosted the nation’s fiercest and most elaborate costume party. Costumes ranged from those you can purchase at a local Halloween shop all the way up to couture ensembles. There were food trucks, drink trucks, karaoke, costume contests and music and dancing… and chilly rain.
But did that stop the party? Not at all! Some even incorporated the rainy weather into their costumes. It was great fun and while I didn’t wear a costume I had planned on wearing, I was there camera in hand in my rain poncho and purple people eater warm hat.
Here are a few of the bands that performed. Nothing like singing and dancing in the rain with thousands of your new friends.
