Witches Night Out

For two nights during October Gardner Village  in West Jordan hosts "Witches Night Out."  I had never heard of it before until my friend Becca invited Lisa, Kirsten and I to go with her.  One of Lisa and Becca's long-time friends was in town, so her and her sister joined us as well.  To learn more about what it is, click on the Gardner Village link above.

Since it was a night for witches, I decided I was going to dress up a bit.  I have always wanted to wear black and orange stripped tights, so I bought a pair.  They were pretty awesome except for the fact that they only came in adult or child size, and apparently the adult size was made for someone who was like 5'4".  Well, I'm quite a bit taller than that so I had to be creative in order to make the tights work.  It was actually pretty funny.

Anyways, so on Friday night we headed up to West Jordan to hang out with some witches.  After dealing with traffic for a good hour and a half, we met up with Becca and headed to Chic-fil-A for dinner.  I hadn't eaten there in a long time, and it was pretty good.  We then all piled into one car for the short drive to Gardner Village.  We were amazed at how many people were there.  Some people got really into it.  I saw some people who actually painted their faces green.  Now that's the Halloween spirit!  Gardner Village was decorated for Halloween and had fake witches all over the place.  There was a lady with an owl (it reminded me of Harry Potter), some guys on stilts, a fortune teller, food and dancing.  We walked around for awhile and then finished the night off with some dancing.  It was pretty fun.  I haven't danced like that for years it seems.

The event ended at 10pm so we took Becca back to her car and then had to deal with more traffic to get home.  Thank you I-15 for being terrible even at 11pm.  :)  Overall it was a fun night had by all.  Thanks for the fun idea Becca.

I'm sad I didn't get a picture of my tights.  Maybe another time...
