(10/25/12) - Things are about to get a little spooky at the Masonic Temple in downtown Flint. Saturday, Vertigo Theatrics hosts the fifth annual Vampire Ball.
"It is overall, a fun and enchanting, frightening experience," said Ted Valley of Vertigo Theatrics.
The event is one of the biggest single day fundraisers for the Flint Farmers' Market.
"Last year, they were able to raise several thousand dollars, which enabled us to do some painting inside the market during the winter and some other improvements that we need. Our building is 72 years old, so there's a lot of stuff that needs to be done," said Karianne Martus, of the Flint Farmers' Market.
As for the ball, it's 21 and up, with live music, food and one of the wildest costume parties you've ever seen.
"People come mostly as vampires, because it's the vampire ball, but we welcome all those who are different sorts. No clowns. No clowns. They scare me," Valley said.
New this year, something family friendly before the sun goes down.
"We've added the emporium during the day, which is a huge shopping event. Fangs, makeup, jewelry, costume pieces," said Ilona Curry of Vertigo Theatrics.
Also new, a spine tingling séance. Perfect for the Masonic Temple, which over the years has been rumored to be haunted.
"If you listen quietly, you can hear the spirits move. They will come to visit you while you sleep," Valley said.
