You needn’t be one of the walking dead to enjoy the Orlando Zombie Ball, but you may well be shambling like one by the end of the night. This Halloween dance-stravaganza features the turn-of-the-century steampunk stylings of theatre troupe Phantasmagoria, spooky-good beats from DJ performance artist Power Infiniti and some straight-up circus madness courtesy of Cirque USA. We’re talking fire dancers here, people; we’re talking about people hanging from the ceiling dressed in mad costumes and contorting their bodies in ways that boggle the imagination. If that’s not your bag (it should be, you party pooper), throw your mask or toga or whatever onstage for the $1,000 costume contest, test your courage in the haunted scare zone or tune in to one of the 13-plus DJs and performers who’ll keep you howling at the moon all night long. And believe us, there will be plenty of howling, thanks to the open bar.
7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24 | Venue 578, 578 N. Orange Ave. | 407-872-0066 | orlandozombieball.com
