Why should I attend the Grand Masquerade Ball?
This party is a nod to the first year of After Dark when we put on a great King Midas show. That year the theme for the season was a Masquerade Ball in the spirit of the grand Balls of Europe in the Renaissance period. We don't do season long themes anymore and instead we change up our themes each week in order to provide a little something for everybody. So for those that want to experience the feel of the masks and fancy dress of the period this is a great way to kick off the season.
How should I dress for the Grand Masquerade Ball?
Dress as a guest at a debutante ball in Europe in the Renaissance time period. You should definitely wear a mask and since this is a throwback to the first year of After Dark then you could throw in some gold in your outfit. As always you may dress in the park's theme or nice club wear.
