It’s that time of the year again…
It’s time for the annual HallOUween block party! Ohio University (OU) does Halloween like no other school has seen before. Court St. is shut down, and a swarm of people dressed head to toe in costume take over Athens for the evening. I promise, you have never seen anything like it!
Court St. will be shut down on Saturday, Oct. 26th starting at 2 p.m., until 2:15 a.m., Sunday Oct. 27th. The annual block party includes three stages, live music, costume contests, prizes, horse cops, and one of the best people watching experiences that you will ever encounter.
The costume contest will begin at about 4 p.m., so get creative because the three blind mice, characters from The Wizard of Oz, and Chippendales are starting to get really old! Beware, people don’t take this lightly, because cash prizes are awarded to the best male and female costumes, and we all know that most college kids are broke!
Following the costume contest, there will be a parade that begins at 6 p.m. showing casing all of the hard work and dedication that went into the Honey for the Heart project in Athens. This is a relatively new, collaborative community project, where volunteers from OU and the Athens community work together to make life-size puppets out of recyclable items.
Following that, bands will kick-start the real party when they begin playing at 8:00 p.m. The celebration will continue the rest of the evening, making it another memorable HallOUween for all.
