Anne Rice is a New Orleans native, and has been writing about vampires since before they sparkled. What you might not know is that she also puts on one of the most anticipated gothic-themed Halloween events in the country, and this year marks the 25th anniversary! So dust-off your fishnets and head to New Orleans to satisfy your tortured soul.

 

Fetish & Fantasy Halloween Ball (Las Vegas)

If Las Vegas is known for anything, it's throwing a rowdy party, and this one takes the cake. The name of the game here is nude or crude, because if you're not bare-assed or covered in PVC leather, you can forget about getting in. Leave the skin-hiding costumes at home, and channel your inner nudist.

Blackout Haunted House (New York)

If you're under 18 you can forget about getting into this Haunted House, and if you're thinking about bringing a friend along you're out of luck. This Haunted House is a therapy inducing nightmare that'll haunt you until the end of your days.

New York's Village Halloween Parade (New York City)

New York City Hosts Annual Halloween Parade

Leave it to New York to pull off the largest Halloween event in the country. The Village Halloween Parade is known to draw in as many as 2 million spectators, and 50-thousand costumed participants to this mile-long party.

 

The Queen Mary: Dark Harbor (Long Beach)

Queen-Mary-ghost

A world famous halloween party on the most haunted ship in America? What more could you ask for?! This year event MC, Captain Grey Ghost, has prepared a special night for those brave souls aboard the Queen Mary. Think Walking Dead meets evil circus carnies, and you're halfway there.

 

A Month of Halloween in Salem (Salem)

If you prefer a little less frat party and a little more substance to your Halloween, head towards Salem, Massachusetts this year for a history lesson about one of America's most infamously spooky towns. The entire month is packed with historical ghost tours, psychic galleries and even a wax museum which depicts the most important hangings in Salem's dark history.

As you can see, there's plenty for big kids to do this Halloween, and whether you're into ghosts, booze, or nudity, there's a little something for everyone to enjoy. So bust out your zombie VMA's Miley costume and head towards one of these parties, because you don't want to be the only one missing out on the fun!
