The Witches Ball

by Kim on October 11, 2014


This FREE outdoor event is a one of a kind opportunity for adults to dress up and be whoever and whatever they want!

Surrender yourself to the atmosphere while all around you performances blend with the patrons as the night progresses. A diverse collection of music, art and revels await those who have the inclination and imagination to take part.

Costumes are encouraged. Be elaborate, be imaginative and be different. More than witches are welcome. Delve deep into the genres of Fantasy, Medieval, Renaissance, Victorian, Steampunk, Pirate, Goblin, Gothic, Horror, Carnival, Celtic and Faerie lore.

This is intended to be an event for adults.  Parents who bring children under 18 should be aware that some costumes may be scary or suggestive.  Strollers after dark in a large crowd can be a safety hazard and we ask that you leave them at home.  Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
