Last year, Dallas got down and dirty with costumes. And nowhere outshone the Cedar Springs block party. Of course, that's usually the case in this city. If you want to see Halloween in all its gory glory, you head to the gayborhood for a night of revelry. This year, with Halloween falling on a Friday, we're sure it will be bigger and better than ever. Although glancing back through last year's costumes, we're not sure it will be easy to top. Here are a few of our favorites. All photos by Ed Steele.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
