HighBall Halloween 2011 Columbus, OH

On Friday evening, I ventured to the Short North district of Columbus, OH.  My destination was the annual HighBall Halloween street party.

A cross between Carnivale and Mardi Gras, with a pinch of Halloween, the event was rocking!

HighBall has become one of the most anticipated and talked-about events in the Midwest.  The key to its success has been its focus on “celebrating the art of design”.  The signature of Highball is a dramatic runway/stage built on the street, under the iconic Short North arches.

Competitions spotlighted the creative talents of both professionals and amateurs.  Finalists strutted their stuff in front of over 20,ooo cheering revelers.

I logged in over 7 miles (on the stilts) over the course of the evening.  Needless to say, I’m wondering whether I’ll even be able to walk by the time Monday comes.

I have included some of my favorite pictures from the evening here.  You may access the full album on my Facebook page.  If you happened to be at the event, please feel free to tag yourself in the pics and use them as you wish.
