Little Five Points Halloween Fest- it never disappoints
Ah, its that time of the year again. The Little 5 Points Halloween Fest was this past Saturday and it always proves to be a blast. There is always a huge sense of disorder, which proves time and time again to be a fantastic element to this event. Usually there is a barrage of hearses that begin the parade but this year that didn't happen. I don't know what happened but I want to blame it on the gas crisis of 2008. As usual there was a great number of gory scary corpses and monsters but the clown was the scariest! He was walking with some sort of undead geisha girl and when he offered my friends' child some candy I wanted to scream no! and tackle the child to protect her. And where else can you see hot girls in panties hanging out in the streets? Last year a lot more people dressed super trashy so this time you mostly got buxom pirate babes and a hot rollergirl or 2. There were also these really awesome 8 foot tall day of the dead costume things. They were a spectacular bunch. I wanted to be in one. Actually it would've been awesome to make KISS skeleton things. Some had glowy eyes that tried to hypnotize me. Gonzo (Dustin) of the Swinks Brothers Stunt Show wiped out doing a wheelie but looked fantastic doing it. Then the parade kind of doubled back on itself and became mayhem. A marching band was in formation while packs of pirates and zombies wove their way through in the opposite direction. Ah, good times. Oh, and as a final note, while first saying "poor kitty" I must then say how awesome it is to be able to bring your cat to the parade.
