Allentown Freak Out!

Friday night brought the opening ceremonies of the Allentown Freak Out, a fringe festival that began last year.

An exhibition of the weird, the festival includes Irish mummers (pictured at the left), fire dancers, gypsy and bluegrass music, sideshow freaks, avant-garde film and burlesque dancers.

The mummers were pretty hilarious - their sole purpose in life seems to be scaring the crap out of little children, which amused Dave more than a little.

The fire dancers were less scary and more sexy, and the music, provided by the West Philly Orchestra, was really awesome.

Dave and I are driving back to Maine tomorrow to finally move out of our stinking apartment, so we will not be able to go to any of the festivities tomorrow. I hope this happens again next year, because I really want to see the Miss Freak Out Pageant.
