Photos from the Theatre Bizarre Grounds

City officials squashed Theatre Bizarre, one of the most anticipated parties of the year. The underground fest that is part carnival, part block party, and all kinds of crazy has been moved from its grounds at West State Fair to The Fillmore.

Back in September, I had the opportunity to tour the Theatre Bizarre grounds as it was putting the finishing touches on this year’s event. The experience will be much different now that the party is moving inside but I still wanted to share these photos with you.

As beautiful and wacky as it is under bright sunlight, the magic really comes alive when darkness hits and the characters show up.

Follow the Theatre Bizarre FaceBook page for updates about tonight's party.

How cool . . . the haunting images seem like time-traveling to a rural carnival of childhood memories (. . . or movies . . . or vivid dreams).

And I find this to be true about various places and experiences:

The magic really comes alive when darkness hits and the characters show up.

Lastly, a repost-worthy entry this afternoon by nurse Paulette Mills (OU, '09) at the FB page you steered us to:

Walking onto the TB grounds is like getting high without having to take drugs. You can recall that feeling on your own, in any place, even in The Filmore. Take that magic with you tonight. May the force be with you. :)

It was so cool walking the grounds in daylight while they were still building but it must be so much more so at night.

I hope that Theatre Bizarre can return to its rightful home next year. I love the quote you found on Facebook!
