(6) What do we wear to a masquerade ball?
A simple Google search like “what to wear at masquerade ball” will bring up hundreds of creative ideas. Amazon may also be a good source to purchase masks or attire by searching “masquerade costume” and “masquerade mask”. There is no specific theme (beyond masquerade) and, given the October date, you can even lean toward the Halloween concept if you so choose. Wearing a simple mask will work, as well as “come as you are”.

Shadofax is a twelve member band. They will be playing rock ‘n roll music from the 70’s and 80’s. You can learn more about Shadofax at their website at: https://shadofax.com
