Cirque du Noir No. 8

an exciting evening of inspiration and creativity that promotes local arts–fine art and creativity, music, photography, innovation and of course, the thing that always brings us all together–food. The proceeds are donated to the Worcester community

Cirque du Noir was a beautiful evening of friends, art, music and food. My daughter and I went and had a great time. We’re looking forward to next year already.

While I didn’t get any really good photos, many other people did and Worcester Magazine posted some great shots too.

October in Worcester

October is beginning to look like a very busy month for me. I started with going to Grand Opening of Worcester Wares in the DCU Center. Then we went to Cinema 320 at Clark to see Forbidden Films which was very good.  We’re hoping to get to some of the others.

This year, I got tickets to Cirque du Noir. This is the 8th year they’ve been holding this party / silent auction but will be my first time going. It looks like a beautiful event and I’m pretty excited about it.  I have to figure out what I’m going to wear!

I’m also looking forward to our annual visit to the Rock and Shock Horror convention. George Romero is supposed to be here this year so that’s interesting. Hopefully, we’ll be able to meet him. Even if we don’t, it’s a great time. We always meet interesting people and get a chance to catch up with others.

Factory of Terror has been open since September. We went last year and it was a lot of fun but might not be the best haunted attraction for those who are easily frightened or small children. We’ll be going again this year. *tip* Getting tickets online is a good idea.

Bancroft Tower is open for the public to go inside and I’d like to get over there and have a look. It’s always closed up so this is a rare opportunity.
