Add spook to your weekend with The Edge’s Halloween Bash

Western New York is littered with buildings that we believe to be haunted.
The Central Terminal, the Richardson-Olmsted Complex, the Iron Island Museum and several others become popular in late October, whether it’s due to ghastly killings of the past or the foreboding experience of a rush of wind in a musty, fully-enclosed attic with creaking floorboards.
It’s easy to forget about the Connecticut Street Armory, the imposing West Side castle-like structure near D’Youville College that was built in 1898 and was almost destroyed by fire. Let’s face it—any structure that nearly burned down but survived must be haunted.
103.3 The Edge’s Shredd and Ragan will host the seventh annual Buffalo’s Biggest Halloween Bash at 6 p.m. Saturday inside the Connecticut Street Armory, 184 Connecticut St., Buffalo. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 day-of.
First and foremost, the major draw of The Edge’s Halloween Bash is the $2,000 prize for best costume. Think what you can do with $2,000! That’s almost 4,000 KitKat bars if you play your cards right.
We wouldn’t recommend dressing up as reformed Miley Cyrus or newly-engaged Kim Kardashian, because those two are a little overdone.
Entertainment includes Suckerpunch, self-proclaimed Western New York’s hardest-hitting modern rock cover band, as well as Stealin’ and Route 66/Nerds.
There will be 10 times more beer stations than last year, The Edge’s website notes, and parking will be available at nearby D’Youville College.
All proceeds will be donated to the Variety Kids Telethon, one of Western New York’s largest children’s charities, which you can learn more about here.
