Halloween costume parties (for adults)

spooky foggy pond

The spooky season is almost here.

Halloween is just a few weeks away, and that means there are a handful of costume parties for adults that are also coming up.

We've pulled together a short list below. (If there are others you think should be included, please share.) Many of these are popular and tickets do sell out. So if you're interested in going, getting tickets sooner rather than later is a good idea.

Also: Get your party plan set give you more time to work on your costume...

October 27: Chris Pratt's Halloween Party (Under The Big Top)
This year's party is moving from the old location on Broadway in the Warehouse District to Jennings Landing in Corning Riverfront Park. "This year's theme is Down By The River: Halloween Under the Big Top in relation to the SNL skit--> CLICK HERE TO WATCH. As always, costumes are MANDATORY, there will be complimentary beer (Miller Lite), cider (Angry Orchard) & wine (sorry no liquor, different permit), great throwback music, costume contest and of course a GREAT TIME!" 9 pm-midnight -- $30

October 27: BOO-jolais Vampire Ball
The annual benefit to support the Alliance for Positive Health is at the Albany Capital Center this year.

October 27: The Masquerade
The Masquerade is a benefit for the Ronald McDonald House Charities. This year's event is at the Schenectady Armory and has a "Streets of London" theme. "This is not your mother's gala, and let us explain why--This event was created to capture your imagination and transport you to another place, time and sometimes another world. Each year our team designs an exciting event based on an imaginative theme that engages our guests with circus-like entertainment, visually stunning decor, glamorous attire and elegant food and cocktails." 7-11 pm -- $125

October 28: Lark Street BID's Annual Halloween Party
The business improvement district's annual party is back a the Washington Park Lake House.
