Halloween Weekend in Hoboken (2010)
The entire city will be a freak fest!
Since Halloween is on a Sunday this year – Saturday night in the Mile Square is set to become the “official” night most adults dress up and party out of character (although just a few drinks any day of the year causes that effect…)
Just about any bar in town will have Halloween-themed events, contests, prizes and more. At the same time – be sure to listen to the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel if you’re near a computer (or use a Android phone) – because the mischievous events that are called in are quite entertaining. Any individuals up to no good, are often described as the character they’re dressed up as. It’s not too often you hear “Barney assaulted Wilma” over the air!
The Halloween Arty
Nope – not a typo. The Halloween Arty takes place at 7pm Friday, October 29th at the intersection of 4th and Jackson Streets. It’s run by Roland Ramos (who held a recent Sculpture Garden Party in the same spot this summer.)
Besides the art that will be on display – they’ll have the reggae band The Tom Hartland Collective playing at 8pm – then DJ Jesus spinning tunes the rest of the night. The usual costume contests (scariest, worst, sexiest, etc.), plus games like bobbing for apples and an old-fashioned egg-toss too!
Free admission (although donations are encouraged).
Here’s a sample of “Burning Logs” from the Tom Hartland Collective:[audio:http://hoboken411.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Burning-Logs-Tom-Hartland-Collective.mp3|titles=Burning Logs Tom Hartland Collective]
