San Antonio's Nightmare Before Christmas Fest Is Next Month

Friday the 13th is an exciting day for many reasons, and it only comes around a few times each year. This year, after you get a cheap tattoo of course, you'll get to experience The Nightmare Before Christmas in San Antonio, literally. It'll be an evening filled with equal amounts of Christmas cheer and spooky scares. 

You may have seen the hype for San Antonio's 8th Annual Burton Ball back in October. Well, the same people who put together that event are putting together this one! The Nightmare Before Christmas Bash will take place on Friday, December 13 from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. at VIBES Event Center, and if it's anything like the Burton Ball, we know we won't be left disappointed. 

Tickets range from $5 to $40 per person, but the more you pay, the more merch you'll get along with your tickets! 

This isn't your average The Nightmare Before Christmas celebration, because not only will you be celebrating a Tim Burton classic, you'll also be celebrating the cult classic series Friday the 13th! Who will you dress up as, Jason or Jack Skellington?

It's especially important to have your costume sorted out (if you choose to come in one) due to the killer costume contests that'll be held throughout the event — six to be exact. Depending on which contest category you'd like to participate in, and how good your costume is, you could win over $500 in cash and prizes. 

Not only will there be costume contests, but you can also expect to be greeted with spooky dance music, creepy décor, film projections, food, and so much more.

We can't wait to see you there, all dressed up and ready to party!
