Halloween in Covington - the legendary Downunder party

The zombie crawl starts at Molly Malone's, where I'm told they are going to have the makeup and clothes to turn you undead if you don't already have a costume.

The Downunder has built quite a reputation for being where the real Halloween madness unhinges, between Amy's and Anna's boundless enthusiasm and artist Bret Schulte's occult summoning of assorted voodoo priestesses and sundry critters of the night. Bret proposed to his fiancée at the hotel where the Shining was filmed, and they plan to have the wedding there. Need I say more?

Well here's more anyway... live music by the J. Dorsey Blues Revival.

I didn't take all these photos... I let the crowd pass around my camera each of the nights.

The Kermit costume has its own growing reputation since I donated it to Amy's collection of Big Heads. As a warm up for the Halloween when I made it, I wore it while singing "Rainbow Connection" at Downunder's Tuesday karaoke night.

I'll be thinking of fun like this when I'm slogging through the neighborhood with my kids trick-or-treating. After the first house, they'll start complaining that their legs are tired and need to be carried.

The real horror this year is the image of countless snotty hands dipping into the same bowls of candy!

Still, the best Halloween party I even attended was when Nathan hired a professional Black Sabbath cover band to play in his basement.
