Theatre Bizarre Transforms The Masonic Temple into The Greatest Masquerade on Earth

The month of Halloween is upon us and the next few weekends will be full of Halloween parties and shows. There are always a lot of great Halloween events throughout the city, but there is one that stands out above them all, Theatre Bizarre. What started out as a party in a backyard in Detroit has grown into what is known as "The Greatest Masquerade on Earth". However, don't be fooled by the fact that this started in a backyard. Even then, this party was epic and made you feel like you were in another world. Now, the event takes over The Masonic Temple in Detroit, transforming several floors throughout the temple into an amazing and twisted Halloween wonderland.

This year, Theatre Bizarre will take place during two weekends. Traditional Theatre Bizarre, also known as The Main Event, will happen on Saturday, October 13th and Saturday, October 20th. This event will feature circus performers, burlesque, and great bands. Some of the musicians performing at this year's events include Voyag3r, Caveman & Bam Bam, Kommander, Carjack., and Krillin vs. Spaceskull. The lineup is different for each of the nights, to see the list for the 13th click here and for the 20th click here. Costumes are required for both of these nights, and people will be turned away if they show up without a costume. Tickets for each of the Saturday night events are $105 per night and can be purchased at the following retail locations:
