On Monday, downtown Highlands was haunted by hoards of ghouls, ghosts and more at its annual Halloween festival.

The usually small and quiet town above the clouds came alive for its “All Hallows Eve” event, as several hundred visitors and locals flooded the streets for candy, music and fun, proving that Highlands knows how to throw down on Halloween.

While waves of trick-or-treaters cobbled together, trickling in from side streets and snaking their way along both sides of Main Street, downtown shopkeepers opened up their doors and gave out candy in the spirit of the age-old holiday.

Laughter, blood, and morally questionable satirical song

Twenty-one year old comedian, Bo Burnham instantly enticed a sold-out room of college students by introducing nudity almost immediately during the inception of his hour-long pretentious comedy skit. Burnham abruptly stripped away his neon-red pants, suggesting he had nothing underneath, but instead he revealed yet another pair of neon-red pants.

Burnham’s politically incorrect and sometimes morally questionable performance, which was preceded by outstandingly talented comedians, Moshe Kasher and Gloria Bigelow, both of whom delivered raunchy, crowd pleasing performances, received a standing ovation by the roaring, sold-out crowd, who never seemed to stop laughing. Burnham opened his act by joking about never before hearing of WCU’s mascot, the Catamount. “What the f#*k is that [catamount], I think it is a measurement of crazy old ladies, she lives with seven cats, so she has a much higher catamount,” he joked.
