Krampus Costume Ball

. May 18, 2012.

Have you been naughty this year? Because if you have then it won’t be Santa coming down your chimney on Christmas Eve—it will be the evil demon Krampus and he wants to eat your face! Every year the people behind the Shadow Art Fair put on the Krampus Costume Ball to honor the old world alpine tradition of dressing as Krampus to scare children into being good. The costume ball will take place on Saturday, December 17, at the Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti. Celebrate the gruesome anti-Claus with your best demonic costume, delicious brews and a “glam sci-fi monster dance party!” Much more is in store this year even rickshaw hot tubs. 7pm. Free. Corner Brewery, 720 Norris St., Ypsilanti. 734-480-2739.
