You’re going to see an awful lot if you venture out to HauntFest on Fifth, the frightfully fun Halloween street party set for 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. this Saturday in Dayton’s Oregon District.
Some of the un-dead eye candy you’ll taken in at the 30th annual bash on Fifth Street between Patterson Boulevard and Wayne Avenue will actually look like awful ghostly ghouls covered in gore.
Other costumes will leave you in stitches or scratching your head and wondering WTH?
The annual event is all in bloodcurdling fun and worth the admission: $5 at the gate before 9 p.m. and $10 after.
It includes food, drinks, music, street performers and a costume contest with cash prizes. I will co-host this year’s costume contest with Jim Bucher and radio personality Kristi Leigh of Mix 107.7 at 10 p.m.
There are popular costume styles every year at HauntFest. Harley Quinn and Star Wars costumes are among the most popular costumes for Halloween 2015, according to Google. Check out Google Frightgeist to see how popular your costume is expected to be this year.
That said, there are outfits and such you are sure to see each year.
Here are 13 costumes we expect to see at HauntFest:
Really confident pirates
Gals who won’t be dressed for the weather
Guys who won’t be dressed for the weather
People who think inside the box or bowl
“Pimps & Hos Fo Sho” … we don’t make up the rules
People who just don’t try very hard
Creepy clowns (gulp)
