Torpedo Factory Halloween Party

Thinking about a girls weekend in Alexandria to come up on the train from Richmond for the Torpedo Factory Halloween/Day of the Dead Party on Nov 2nd. Is it worth the trip up? Hoping to stay at the hotel near the train station and taking the trolley around town. Anything else worth seeing in that area?

It can be a lot of fun, especially if you dress up and get into the "spirit".

Here's their web site http://www.torpedofactory.org/dayofthedead/

The Torpedo Factory Art Center presents our 4th annual Day of the Dead extravaganza, featuring an exhibition of artist-made altars and Day of the Dead themed artwork, as well as a festive Costume & Dance Party featuring live music by The Torches, a costume contest, and more!

Costume & Dance Party: Friday, November 2nd, 8-11pm

Tickets: Advance $15; Door: $20 or two for $35 (Tickets $10 each with a Student ID)

Special Discount: Purchase 5 advance tickets or more and get them each for only $10

Reserve your advance tickets by contacting 703-838-4565 x2 or events@torpedofactory.org

Put on your Halloween or Day of the Dead finest and join in on the revelry! The Torpedo Factory invites you to get into the Day of the Dead spirit with a host of fun festivities including:

• Live Music by The Torches & Dancing

• Costume Contest

• DIY Miniature Altar Project

• Bubble Gum Painting

• Cash Bar & Snacks

While there are lots of great shops in the Torpedo Factory, my favorite is the Studio 18 right by the front door across from the Art League


Officially called the Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery

Plus lots of other stuff to see and do


Just click through these three web sites and see if it's what you are interested in. Hope this helps
