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.
good to know, thanks
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!
Had a blast last night! Good times once again, and great costumes! :D
Stopped in the new "Goody Boy" bar to watch the World Series. Nice bar, huge patio, alot of tv's, but $5 Yuengling drafts??. Hope that was just an event price. It was a ghoul place to hang out with some ghoul friends for the night.
The Idea Foundry puppets were AMAZING! There could have been 10 more of those roaming the streets! So cool! I loved that they gave the party a higher dimension.
Stage was great this year. Location super. I had a great time!
Had a blast last night at Highball. The whiskey spiked apple cider helped keep the winter snap at bay.
I added the pictures I took to my G+ steam:
Great pics! Thanks for posting!
I was one of the ones mixing up that hot cider (third year in a row) and it is def the best drink avail on a chilly night. And my favorite festival volunteer gig of the year.
This was by far the best laid out Highball yet.
The new stage position was fantastic, and the remote video cast of the main stage at one of the smaller stages was brilliant!
(p.s. that was rum, not whiskey, in that cider!)
I really liked the location this year everything seemed to work out really well. As far as parking I was able to find plenty of street parking on 4th by the WP elementary school.
one of the official highball drinks got my friend drunk, (it was a blue one,) and she had to drive home drunk, and so now she's considering suing the city.
The event was a blast this year. people in the streets seemed so happy and free spirited that it was an awesome scene to be a part of. Loved the music and video feed throughout the venue and the rad crowds coming from every direction all night long.
I had great feedback on the glow mural even if it was a tricky situation with the city lights to make a wall glow. Had a great time either way! Really look forward to next year now.
