Kent Halloween Festival

Downtown Kent

Boo at the Roo

E.J. Thomas Hall, Akron

The team at E.J. Thomas has a lot in store for Halloween night. Once the doors open at 9:09 p.m., students – who are admitted free – will be able to get tarot card readings, compete in a costume contest, listen to live music and eat and drink to their heart’s content. They will offer a cash bar for those over the age of 21. Contest prizes include an iPhone and airplane tickets for Spring Break.

Halloween Charity Ball

Highland Theatre

826 W. Market Street, Akron

This may just be the best bet for the weekend. Pre-sale tickets are $30 through the law school, Revival or Square Records; tickets purchased at the door run $35.
