The New England Carousel Museum is throwing its second annual Zombie Ball on Friday, October 27, 2017 in celebration of the Halloween season, this time with the help of the Central Connecticut Chambers' Young Professional Organization, PYVOT.

This 21-plus event begins at 8:00 PM with a Coney Island Freak Show in honor of the exhibit INK: The History and Ritual of Tattoo & Body Art. The ghastly evening continues as the undead make their way up to our haunted ballroom at 9:00PM for dancing and other spooktacular festivities.

Toast the witching hour with us when the clock strikes midnight, as this hair-raising party goes until 1:00AM. Come in your zombie best or other spooky attire, all costumes are welcome -however, zombies are highly encouraged. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes, zombie and otherwise.

This is a BYOB event, with snacks, a candy bar, and local fare available throughout the evening. There will also be tarot card readings, photos with Leo the lion & henna tattoos. Some food and activities may require a small additional fee. Don't miss the fun!

Admission to this event is $20 per person or $25 at the door. Coming in a group? Tables of 8 may be reserved in advance. For more information or to purchase tickets call 860-585-5411 or visit http://www.thecarouselmuseum.org.
