Halloween Guide 2012: Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach County

Photo by Christina Mendenhall
The benefit to being an "adult" is that the best holiday Halloween (sorry, Christmas) doesn't just fall on one scary day. Nope. The entire month of October is filled with opportunities to slather yourself in fake blood and pervertedly eye young'uns in slutty nurse costumes. 

Because you need to know where to wear your pregnant nun costume, County Grind created the ultimate Broward and Palm Beach County guide to Halloween happenings. 

The guide will be constantly updated, so don't forget to check back regularly. If you feel like we've missed any events, please let us know by emailing music@browardpalmbeach.com.

No mention of the Halloween Fetish Ball on your "ultimate" list?  For shame, New Times.  For shame.


This Saturday 10/27 is the Fetish Factories Halloween Fetish Ball.  People come from all over the world for this event, which gets upwards over 2000 people in every corner of Exit 66 on Fort Lauderdale Beach.  Including flying in from LA fetish model and performer Masuimi Max!


All of these events sound like so much fun- I love Halloween!  If anyone out there is looking for a great costume (espcially those attending one of the costume contest events), check out Costume World in Deerfield Beach.  I got my costume from them last year and have nothing but good things to say about them- the store is HUGE, they have literally anything you could imagine.  If you want something more extravagant and impressive they even do nicer costumes as rentals.  Check them out!  They're on Federal Hwy in Deerfield, i think just north of 10th.
