Transcript We.tKei^er Street Festival For the second year in a row, the Westheimer Street Festival, or "West Fest," was exiled to Allen Parkway. This year's festival, in comparison to years past, was nothing special. The most colorful and eclectic people that Houston has to offer were seemingly absent from this year's event. And the events that normally get people talking were virtually nonexistent. "West Fest" was held on Saturday and Sunday, Oct 20th and 21st, near Eleanor Tinsley Park. Admission was $5 and the event promised loads of music, food, vendors and events such as the Ladies' Wet T-shirt contest and the Men's Fine (Butt) competition. However, the most entertaining thing in both of these contests was the Master of Ceremonies, who kept trying to round up contestants by dangling the $100 prize in front of them. Other events included a "Break Dance Challenge," a jousting contest and a "Rain Forest" where festival goers could escape from the heat. With three stages and over ten bands, the music portion of the festival was the only thing that weekend that did deliver on its promises of excellence. Saturday's musical acts included, on the Cannabis Odyssey Stage, Fault Havoc, Geek, Hoka Voodoo, DJ Sociopath, Why Get Blowed?, Given, Carolyn Wonder and Faceplant. On Sunday, Sense of Urgency, DJ Alibi, Dub Tec/Counter Intel, Four, Superna, Why Get Blowed?, Given, The Ghetto Puppets and Mean Peace took the stage. Despite its efforts to recreate the same atmosphere and craziness that the festival had while it was being held on Westheimer, this year's sparse crowd and a lack of promotional efforts on the part of the organizers made this year's "West Fest" lackluster in comparison to years past. - Erin Nagy Rock on! Various bands played during the run of the festival, adding to the atmosphere. Photo by Kena Alvarado Peace out, man. Tie-dye is always in style, as evidenced by this hippie's dress at the popular West Fest. Photo by Kevin Harwerth Writer Erin Nagy didn't enjoy the West Fest as much as she had in years past. Said Nagy, "In the past, West Fest has been really good, but this last year wasn't that great. There were less colorful people and more preppies." Twilight Zone if s not... This sign indicates the exit of the festival, as well as implying something completely unrelated ... or is it? Photo hy Kevin Harwerth 'feat Fest \25
