Orlando Zombie Ball returns to Venue 578 with a party to die for


You could spend your Halloween drunkenly begging neighbors for candy and eventually making it to a lame house party that only plays the Spooky Scary Skeletons remix, or you could actually have a good time this weekend at Orlando Weekly’s Orlando Zombie Ball. The kind of party you’d die for includes free drinks guaranteed 7 p.m. to midnight; sick beats by BUZA and DJ Smilin’ Dan; a zombie outbreak scare zone; a live performance from the City Beautiful’s spookiest theater group, Phantasmagoria; and cash prizes for best costumes ($2,000 goes to the first-place winner; contest happens at 1 a.m.). Kudos to whichever one of you brings a sexy – or regular – Ken Bone getup to the party.

7 p.m.-2 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 29 | Venue 578, 578 N. Orange Ave. | orlandozombieball.com | $15-$65
