Explore the ghastly and ghoulish as the Crosley Estate Foundation presents the House of Horrors, based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. Revelers will have the opportunity to tour thirteen rooms of Gothic gore, creep through the Crosley Cemetery and squirm through terrifying performances as the Master of the Macabre himself recounts his hauntingly horrible tales in the Coffinbox Theater.
You’ll want to take the time to enjoy poisons and potions as well as a few snacks to nourish your courage as a cast of spooks and spirits accompany you through the nightmares and dreams of this horrible haunt located on the grounds of the Powel Crosley Estate.
The Masque of the Red Death- a Gala Masquerade
Wednesday October 31st
$75 in advance/ $90 at the door
Enjoy entertainment, dancing, potions and after-bites as the Powel Crosley Estate Foundation presents a Halloween Gala on Wednesday, October 31 from 7pm-11pm. The Masque of the Red Death, based on the Edgar Allan Poe story of the same name, is a masquerade party hosted by Poe’s Prince Prospero.
The Gala will feature music and dancing, food and drink as well as a cast of colorful characters set forth to entertain. You will find yourself amidst a host of revelers gathering behind the iron gates of the Estate to escape the clutches of the Red Death, a plague more horrible than any have seen in history.
As the clock strikes each hour with a cold and unsettling chime, steady your nerves with the Prince’s potions designed to keep you safe from the Plague. Nibble on an extravagant selection of decadent foods to sustain you as you dance under the stars to heart-stopping music. Explore the grandly appointed rooms of the mansion; rooms full of fine and garish décor, but… beware the final toll of the ebony clock… the elusive Red Death may indeed make a fatal appearance!
The Masque of the Red Death gala, created and catered by Milan Catering & Event Design, begins at 6:00pm in the Crosley Mansion and Prince Prospero expects you in cocktail attire or mask. Costumes are recommended and this is a 21+ event.
