We usually aren’t night people, but sometimes the most fun happens at night. On Halloween for example. This year we went to the Edgewater Hotel for their Halloween Badger Tailgate Party held in the big tent in the Plaza.
The Ryan McGrath Band played a lot of great music too. Here is a good example of their performance.
There was great food too, We enjoyed Duck Jambalaya and Pork Spare Ribs. We picked up our food in The Icehouse near the tent. Al is sure enjoying the ribs! There was a beanbag game going on too.
After a great afternoon at the Edgewater we went to the Westmorland neighborhood on Meyer Ave. Here are the boundaries of this beautiful neighborhood. It isn’t far from the Glenwood Children’s Park.
This was the 22nd year of this popular and free haunted house. The parents of a friend of ours do this just because they love celebrating Halloween. There are also a great many children around, and to hear them saying “trick or treat” all around was something I have not heard a lot of since the 1980’s. They kept the spirit of Halloween alive here. Lets go through the “haunted house” on this exclusive tour I recorded when we went there. There are no people jumping out at you in the dark, just many creepy decorations and black and red lights. One section of the video also has a flashing strobe light, making sure those sensitive to strobes are informed. Lets go, if you dare!
We managed to make it through alive, and we had a great time. The house has a Facebook page if you want to see when you can go next year. This was a great old-fashioned Halloween that brought back memories of celebrating it as a child.
