- Stop by the Court Avenue District’s Halloween party at the Court Avenue Brewing Company from 9 to 11 p.m. and have your photo taken by Juice staff. You’ll see your photos from our pop-up studio at dmJuice.com and will be entered in our costume contest. First place will win $500, second place wins $300 and third place is a $200. See finalists and vote for your favorite to determine the winners starting at 8 a.m. Saturday.
- Enjoy local comedians riffing on local (and not-so-local) things starting at 9 p.m. at The Beechwood Lounge, 416 E. Walnut St. Free.
- More than 500 gallons of phosphorescent paint will be dumped on dancers while DJs play EDM starting at 7 p.m. at the Val Air Ballroom, 301 Ashworth Road, West Des Moines. The paint is fully washable and the wearing of white clothes is highly encouraged. Don’t worry about the historic ballroom; extra precautions are being taken to protect the dance floor and — again — the paint is fully washable. $20 in advance through ticketweb.com, $25 day of show.
