Let me start this post off by saying, WOW!!

I have never been a part of such an extravaganza.

The Hyde Street Keg Party is a party that occurs once a year but is anticipated year-round.

A whole street is completely shut down and about 4000 people show up in their choice of costume.


We all woke up at 7 am and started preparing for the long day ahead. We ended up leaving for Hyde Street at about 10 am. When we got there, it was absolute mayhem.

Every other house down the street had a DJ with a massive set up.


They had free food for everyone and basically, the only rule was you couldn’t bring glass bottles in.

Writing about it doesn’t do it justice but then again neither do pictures or videos.

Enjoy them!
