Dressed to Kill: Las Vegas' best halloween costume parties

Dressing up for Halloween is no longer just for kids — especially in Sin City. Several Las Vegas venues host costume parties exclusively for adults to show off their sexy (or scary) Halloween creations.

The popular Fetish & Fantasy Halloween Ball returns to the Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Oct. 31 at 10 p.m. This year marks the event's 20th anniversary.

Guests are encouraged to dress up during Chateau Nightclub & Rooftop's Halloween
festivities at Paris Las Vegas as well Oct. 30 and 31, which will feature a performance by rapper Wale on Oct. 30.

Venues up and down the Strip get in on the campy, spooky, sexy fun. Some parties will offer prizes for costumes so be sure you show up in your Halloween best!


Halloween Haunts For (Almost) All Ages
The Springs Preserve's annual Haunted Harvest (Oct.16 to 18,23 to 25, and 30 to 31 from 5 to 9p.m.) is fun for boys and ghouls of all ages and features a haunted maze, trick-or-treat stations, carnival games and more.

Shark Reef Aquarium's Haunted Reef  at Mandalay Bay (Oct. 30 to Nov. 1) is another popular event with families, as the aquatic attraction's dim lights and eerie decorations line the tunnels.

Fright Dome at Circus Circus (select nights Oct. 2 to 31) is a 250,000-scare-foot theme park recommended for guests age 12 and older.
