    What’s New at HighBall in 2011?
    By: Walker

    The simple answer to that question is… a lot!

    The fourth annual HighBall Masquerade on High returns this Friday to offer an estimated 20,000 costumed patrons another opportunity to party in the streets and celebrate the local arts, culture and fashion of the Halloween holiday.

    I live in Italian Village and have friends who live directly above Zen Cha Tea Salon on High throwing a party tonight, and I plan on walking there. Is someone going to try and charge me $$$ to walk down High Street?

    edit: not a cheap-ass, I just want to know

    Anne & I will be there!

    TBone – A portion of High Street will be closed for the party. If you’re going inside the party, then yeah, you’re expected to pay.

    What the Rock?! will be open until 10pm tonight. We will have free tarot card readings by Dawn Thompson from 8-10p.

    My understanding is that if you are shopping the local stores, you can tell them at the gate and they should let you through without paying. However, if you plan on participating in other festivities like drinking, costume contest etc., your patronage is expected.

    We hope to see you tonight!

    Someone correct me if I’m wrong. But I don’t believe the Highball folks ever publicized any parking plan for businesses and party goers. I think it would have been nice to supply a map of open parking in the area. My suggestion for shoppers during the day is to look for on street parking a block off of High St. in either direction. And perhaps The Gateway parking garage for those attending the event tonight.

    Due to the crowds I am planning on parking around Summit and 5th and walking over. Are there any parking permit restrictions in this area at night?

    you should just incorporate your car as part of your costume, that way you won’t have to park it.

    Walker, thanks for posting that link. It should be noted that contrary to their info, meters are bagged between 4th and 6th on High St.

    Also, I don’t know of any permit only zones in the Summit & 5th area. But beware that traffic is being diverted down Summit from 5th Ave. So my guess is that area will be filling up fast.

    I always parked downtown & bus’d in… it was fast, easy and in previous years, they offered a special rate.

    for the life of me I simply can’t think of a costume idea. Sadly, I fear I shall be dressed as my evil twin.

    I would ask people to post suggestions, but I’m terrified of what those suggestions would end up being, given the fevered imaginations of CUers.

    I thought of one. It will be in my usual bad taste. Two words: Cherenkov radiation!

    That would be my advice. The #21 runs late.

    Also, the South Campus Gateway garage at 11th is only 6 blocks from 5th Ave, which isn’t a super long walk.
