7 ways to Spend Your Halloween Weekend

Congratulations, you finally decided on your Halloween Costume! Or, if you’re anything like me, you’ve spent countless hours making your costume, precisely assembling every piece for multiple outfits and the time has finally come… it’s Halloween Weekend!

Thursday – Oct. 30 Those of us who are lucky enough to have no Friday classes (or are just really self-disciplined) can get an early start on the festivities by donning costumes on the eve of Halloween.

Costume Party at Ziggy’sThe Greenhouse Band and Collective Dialect are giving a concert at Ziggy’s in downtown Wilmington. What better way to enjoy live music than by wearing your first awesome outfit of the weekend? This event is only $5.

If you happened to see The Nude Party band at Ziggy’s on Oct. 9, chances are you also saw The Greenhouse Band perform! They rocked the venue with their tunes that give a surfy vibe. Think Mac DeMarco.

“Phantom of the Opera”

If you’d rather watch professionals than dance the night away yourself, go to Thalian Hall for the City Ballet’s rendition of this thrilling classic. Cost: $10-25 depending on seating.

Friday – Oct. 31  Halloween!With the sad reality of 8 a.m. class, you might have to wait until the actual night of Halloween to get your spooky on. So, you and your friends have your Uber set up and are heading downtown but you don't have a destination? Choose from:
