Gay Halloween mayhem overflows on Pacific

Add this share

Gay Houston let its Halloween all hang out during an outdoor celebration Saturday on Pacific Street that featured a drag race and costume contest.

The Outdoor Block Party was a celebration befitting gay Halloween. While the costumed craziness unfolded on Pacific, the bars that surround all the outdoor action had their own plans for the evening. Inside South Beach, it was a Freak Show. No, literally. That's the name of the event that Dirty Pop Drew G helmed from the DJ booth and he delivered just like he did there for the New Year's party and that epic Pride After Party in 2014.

Across Pacific was Zombies Attack at the Montrose Mining Co., while the Super Heroes Party cranked it up inside JR's.

Besides the costumes, Saturday's celebration even attracted Chris Bell, the former City Council member who was in the final days of his mayoral campaign. (Spoiler: It didn't go so well.)

South Beach continued its celebration on Sunday with its Halloween Foam Party. Think sexy costumes in 10,000 cubic feet of foam. The sudsy fun marked the last foam party of the year for the dance club.

Need more gay Halloween? Of course you do. Enjoy all of our photos here.
