Hauntings and running and bears… oh my! Get spooked by all the best creepy, crawly things this weekend. From rocky horror to sweaty horror to Baltimore horror — get ready to scream. It’s the weekend.
Everyone needs a good haunted house experience before the Halloween season is over. The Nevermore haunt brings local flavor and an old school experience to the haunted house scene, and they’re continuing their terror this Friday, October 20 and Saturday, October 21. Schedule your arrival in a 15-minute time slot and take the haunt shuttle from Fell’s Point to reach the Nevermore destination. Meet serial killers, unlicensed physicians, sailors, and factory workers during your haunting. Tickets are $25 and times are available from 7 to 11 p.m. on both nights.
If thousands of runners filling the streets of Baltimore for half a day scares you, you may want to plan to sleep in on Saturday, October 21. For runners and spectators: the annual Baltimore Running Festival kicks off this weekend. Lyft will be serving runners by providing perks (i.e. a DJ, free massages) at pick up and drop off points at the Fitness Expo and Celebration Village. Watch marathon and half marathoners run past Patterson Park. The race begins at 8 a.m.
Interactive movie nights at the Creative Alliance have earned a special place in our hearts, with giveaways, add-ons, sing alongs and more. Add Rocky Horror Picture Show (a classic interactive film to the mix) and you can’t go wrong with your night of entertainment. Rocky Horror Picture Show is a nutty, musical cult film from 1975. The Friday show is sold out, but you still have time to grab a ticket for Saturday, October 21 for the 7:30 or 10:30 p.m. showings. Game packs are available at the door for $5. Packs include everything you need to join in the fun of and interactive Rocky Horror screening. Pull up your garters and don some red lip stick for this merry, scary event.
In true Baltimore fashion, Octoberfest events are continuing throughout the month. The Maryland Zoo gets in on the action and pairs beer with bears for its Oktobearfest event. This Saturday, October 21, hang with the wild animals from noon to 4 p.m. while also sampling 60+ beers. Tickets range from $45-$55 (or $25 for drivers/non-sampling attendees). The fundraiser supports the Maryland Zoo.
