The Short North is also the home of a number of huge Columbus festivals including the Community Fest (ComFest), Pride Festival, The Doo Dah Parade, Highball Halloween, and monthly Gallery Hops. Signified by the 17 metal archways that are adorned with lights, The Short North is where Columbus once earned the nickname “Arch City.”You walk through one of the most vibrant and trendy areas of the city.
