Since I had so much fun this weekend, I’ll have to split my recap into a few parts, starting with Halloween night at the BC Royal Museum. They offer a series of events called ‘Night Shift’ and this one was called ‘Nightmare at the Museum’ and man, it was a blast!!
It started at 8 p.m. and had a schedule of events that ranged from a big dance floor, to Ouija board/seances in Old Town, a jazz band in Old Town for a few hours, various exhibits dressed up to be spooky–and they were SO cool, and good luck charm making, and skeleton/vampire/zombie dancers (sadly we missed these), a Mad Scientist act- that was super boring actually, we left early, and a short tour discussing various bloody historical disasters- that was neat!
I had a great time! You could buy some food for $5, drinks for $7, including beer, wine and two signature cocktails–incluiding Vampire Blood and Dark and Stormy. I had a Dark and Stormy and a curry- that maybe caused me to have a stomach bug the next day but that’s for tomorrow’s story…haha.
We cruised up and down and checked out everything! I loved the exhibits that had random eyeballs, dead baby dolls, zombie glowing eyed deer, a UFO in the sea exhibit, the Mastodon that gored a clown?? Soooo cool.
I would DEFINITELY go next year- the tix were $30 and they sold out within the week. So, the moral of the story- get your tickets fast, becuase this is the fanciest Halloween party you’ll ever go to, and the most fun too!
