Yup, it’s that time of year again. Halloween in Madison. Men choose from a variety of costumes ranging from characters on sesame street to intimidating figures such as Jason Voorhees. And women…well what else can I say except halloween is an awesome time to be a guy.
Most students make this week a three day party starting on Thursday night and not stopping until early Sunday morning. And being here, I can honestly say that you don’t want to miss it. If you aren’t here, well, then I feel for you.
Saturday night is the formal night of Halloween here as it is Freakfest on State St. It’s one of the craziest times to be here in Madison, with the exception of the Mifflin Street Block Party, and to make it even better, Mac Miller is performing on the Capitol Stage at 8 p.m. Saturday night. It’s going to be a madhouse, literally, so either show up on the early side and get a good spot, or be prepared to be pushed around by some tipsy goblins and ghosts here and there.
