SAVE’s annual Halloween Ball has become one of the must-attend events on the gay South Florida social calendar, and this year the foundation turns things up a notch for the 20th annual event. This year’s theme is “Once Upon a Midnight Scary” and the party will happen on Saturday, October 25 starting at 10 p.m. The venue this year is the historic Alfred I. Dupont building, located at 169 E. Flagler Street in downtown Miami.
Whether you’ve been to the Halloween Ball before or this is your first time attending, be sure to dress in scary Halloween attire, as this ball is known to pull out all the stops, giving attendees only the spookiest costumes and the best decor. One contstant that occurs every year at the Halloween Ball is the eagerly-anticipated costume contest. A panel of judges will choose which costume is the scariest, elaborate, and most fun. The winner and runners-up will walk away with over $1000 in cash and prizes. Think you got what it takes? Prepare your costume now and you might just be the winner.
In addition to the fun costume contest, there will be entertainment in the form of music spun by your favorite DJs. Tracy Young is the headlining DJ for this event, and she is joined by fellow DJs Alex Ramos, Carlos Rojas, Bill James and Maximus 3000.
