Nightmare on Congress
My sister and I took our first trip to Tucson, Arizona to help set up a Halloween Haunted House for Nightmare on Congress, held at the historic Hotel Congress. We spent two days building a haunted house with Slobby Robby, local artist and good friend to my sister. The haunted house wound around and behind the stage and dropped you out right in the middle of the party. Pretty cool. We didn’t leave the hotel much, but Tucson is a neat spot. The restaurant at Hotel Congress was a pretty popular spot and lots of hip Tucson folks were constantly coming in and out. I’d like to visit again and see a little more of the city and explore the mountains, but overall, the trip was great. The hotel was so quirky, the people were spirited and the air was dry, dry, dry. Bring lots of water if you go. Here are a few shots from our adventure.
Nightmare on Congress was by far the best Halloween party I’ve ever been to. It rivals Houston’s 2212 party with the amount of creativity that goes into the costumes, for sure. There were at least 5 bars, live music, $500 Halloween Costume Contest, Haunted House by EAT and so many amazing costumes.
