Inspired by the cult classic film of the same name, the Faena Horror Picture show is going to be a celebration of all things kinky. Hosted by Miami drag goddess Adora, the party takes place in the Faena’s Living Room, a chic space inside the hotel filled with plush animal print couches and an elegant chandelier—the perfect environment for such a soiree. After some dancing and cocktails, stay for a screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Thousands are expected to attend this Wynwood Halloween block party taking place on Halloween night. With over 15 bars, 20 food trucks, DJs and a local artisan market—there will be no shortage of things to do during this sensory overload of a party. The costume-watching should be prime and don’t even think about driving—parking will be the scariest thing about the night.
