    Backus Boo Ball

    The A.E. Backus Museum’s favorite Halloween-themed benefit extravaganza returns on Saturday, October 21, 2023 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. on the Museum’s Outdoor Mural Plaza. Backus Boo Ball tickets are $50 each and are available online at www.BackusMuseum.org, or at the Museum at 500 North Indian River Drive in Historic Downtown Fort Pierce during regular hours. <br />
    <br />
    It’s no tricks and all treats for the signature masquerade party with artsy-funky fun for adults. Live music provided by The Square Ones, complimentary monster chow and a cash bar with witchy brews and wicked spirits available to fuel the zombie jamboree on the dance floor. Attendees can take a stab at the Serial Griller Experience raffle including a Traeger Grill, assorted grilling meats from Adams Ranch, a YETI Cooler and more! And all those haunting the plaza can commemorate their evening by capturing their souls to share in the Boo Ball photo booth.<br />
    <br />
    The frightful fun continues into the night, as attending ghosts and ghouls will be considered for the Costume Contest in one of seven categories including: Scariest (“Ultimate Nightmare”), Prettiest (“Wicked Beauty”), Funniest (“Scared Silly”), Most Original (“Unique Freak”), Best Couple (“Gruesome Twosome”), Best Classic Halloween (“Chiller Thriller”), and the People’s Choice Award rounding out an ominously delightful night. Cash prizes will be awarded as we approach the witching hour, so come dressed in your best creepy couture. The night will be a bloodcurdlingly boo-tiful bash for all!<br />
    <br />
    Our Backus Boo Ball is inspired by the artist A.E. “Bean” Backus’s legendary Halloween parties. In those days, younger friends of Backus were allowed to produce and host highly-anticipated gatherings every year that terrified and enchanted hundreds of guests. The Backus Boo Ball is inspired by that long ago tradition, and is today a classy return to a fun Halloween-themed party at the Museum for grown-ups.<br />
    <br />
    It’s time to eat, drink, and be scary to benefit the Backus Museum! Tickets are $50. Get your tricked out disguise ready for your treats, but tickets are limited so get them before they’re gone! Check online at www.BackusMuseum.org/boo-ball or call the Museum at 772-465-0630.<br />
