Two years ago, at our big Krampus party, I was momentarily knocked unconscious by a disco ball which had been hurled at my head. With that as my point of reference, last night’s event went exceptionally well. What follow are a few of the photos that I was able to snap between beers. I don’t think they come close to capturing the magic that propelled the night’s events, but I felt as thought I should share them, if only to prove to my family in Kentucky that, yes, people do in fact really come out for these things.
A lot of people contributed toward making last night’s event a success. Chief among them are Chris Sandon, Partick Elkins, Trevor Stone, Natalie Barry, all of the folks in the No Experience Required Marching Band, the guy who let us use his PA, Charlie Slick and Daniel Peron for bringing fuel for our torches, the drag queens of Elbowdeep, everyone who showed up in costume, and the staffs of both the Corner Brewery and Woodruff’s… I know I’ve said it before, but it really is incredible what this City can pull off when everyone works together.
If you were there, let me know what you thought. And send photos if you have them… I’m especially interested in seeing documentation of the parade. As I was holding a torch at the front of the procession, I didn’t get to see much of what was taking place behind me.
