The Boys Were Out (And Costumed!) At Save Dade's Halloween Ball



The Save Dade Halloween Ball is one of Miami's biggest Halloween parties. First, there’s a VIP event for the Young Guardians Society Luminary Awards, where food and a premium open bar help honor four outstanding young community leaders for their contributions to LGBT equality and social justice. The following ball keeps the party going until 3 a.m.

After hitting up a couple of earlier parties, I arrived after 1 a.m. at the 19th Annual SAVE Dade Halloween Ball -- this year, the Armageddon Miami Alien Invasion party -- and lucky me, there were plenty of costumes! From Miley Cyrus on her wrecking ball to Cher with a newspaper wig, the boys were out at the Miami Beach Convention Center with creative homemade getups. While Tracy Young had the crowd moving to circuit dance music in the main room, I found my happiness in the second room where the DJ was spinning disco and dance pop classics. This is close to the end of the party, so my excitement to dance and discover aliens and space creatures, in keeping with the party's theme, made my rush to Miami Beach worth it. -- Jipsy
