8th Biggest Halloween Bash set for Armory

The Connecticut Street Armory will be brimming with more than just ghost stories this Halloween.
 ­The eighth annual Buffalo’s Biggest Halloween Bash kicks off at 6 p.m., Oct. 31 at 184 Connecticut St. Shredd Ragan of 103.3 The Edge and Paratrooper Army Navy are hosting the bash.
“With all the haunted rumors about the place, it seemed like the best fit,” Mike Battaglia, promotion director for The Edge said.
Tickets can be bought for $20 at the Paratrooper Army Navy store located at 4239 Transit Road,  online at ticketmaster.com, or $25 at the door. A grand prize of $2,000 will be awarded for best costume. Attendees must be 18 years or older.
“We will have live music from Kurt and the Loders, That 80’s Hair Band, and DJ Sammy Diaz, Halloween themed rooms and a selfie casket room,” Battaglia said. “Attendees will be able to lay down in a real casket and take a selfie of themselves, psychics and palm readers, photo booth, cartoon caricatures, beer stands, food and more.”
 All proceeds from the bash are being donated to the Variety Kids Telethon, which aims to help and support handicapped and underprivileged children. By Laney Hill and Stephanie Vogel
