By far, Halloween is my favourite holiday. When else can you dress up & let your hair down?! For the last 3 years, I’ve attended Menagerie at Two Rivers Gallery. Judging the costume competition was a challenge, because there are always a ton of EPIC outfits, all deserving of prizes!
My friends from CKPG had a riot in the photo booth
Recognize me? In 2015 I dressed up as a ninja. Blondes DO have more fun!
At last year’s event, I had my first-ever psychic reading. I was pretty skeptical going in, but the medium did pass along some eerily sage advice!
My fortune, as per the cards
This year, the Gallery is pulling out all the stops. In 2016, the theme is “Twisted Circus.” The event will kick off with music from local artists Danny Bell and Raghu Lokanathan. Partygoers will get to try their hand at circus-inspired games and meet sideshow spectacles, including a Strong Man, Mermaid, and Bearded Lady. Peer into a “Cabinet of Curiosities,” sip on absinthe & single-malt whisky, and, of course, dance the night away! Thanks to their creative flair, staff transform the space into a haunted wonderland. Here’s a sneak peek at this year’s décor:
Also new this year, the ticket price has been lowered. The Gallery wants as many people as possible to be able to join in the fun! It’s worth it to buy early; tickets are $45 until September 30, $50 until October 15, and last-minute tickets are $55. Groups of 8 or more get a 10% discount. Student tickets are just $40; just show your ID at the front desk.
