Whether speared with a single pickle or given the emptying-the-whole-fridge treatment, there was a Bloody Mary for everyone at the ninth annual Bloody Mary Fest in Highwood Sunday, July 29. 

Around 10,000 attendees circled around the vender-riddled Everts Park from morning to evening for the event put on by Celebrate Highwood, taking in all the eats and drink, often in the same heavy glass.
