All Hallow’s Eugene

The second annual All Hallow’s Eugene, put on by the Eugene Film Society and City of Eugene Cultural Services, was a grand slam downtown, which just goes to show what a family-friendly place the heart of the city can be with expansive, well-executed city programming. Hundreds of costume-clad pets, teens, college kids, families and Halloween diehards strut their stuff in the costume parades from the Hult Center, down Willamette and then Broadway, where businesses handed out treats. Highlights include: fat dogs dressed as hotdogs, the interactive shadow puppet show at the Hult, the exuberant Thriller flashmob in Kesey Square and a disturbingly dead-on costume rendition of perhaps the scariest clown of our time — the forever-grinning Twisty from American Horror Story: Freak Show — who seemed to be around every corner. Kudos. You’ll be in our nightmares until next year.
