Join us for a live DJ, dancing, door prizes, drinks (cash bar), appetizers and more howling-good fun.  This is your chance to party with haunters from around the world and celebrate the end of another successful show. Costumes and creative attire ARE ALLOWED* and encouraged (but not required) as you party the night away at the final celebration of the 2020 Halloween & Attractions Show! Tickets are limited, and when they’re gone… they’re gone! You won’t want to miss this opportunity to celebrate such a rare and unique event!  After all, the Halloween Moon is so rare that it will not be seen again until 2037. Tickets are limited, and when they’re gone… they’re gone! Sponsored By Donat Insurance
