Night at the museum draws 5,000 partygoers who get in the spirit with great costumes
What: Houston Museum of Natural Science "Spirits & Skeletons" costume party.
Where: Houston Museum of Natural Science.
The 411: The museum's annual Halloween bash drew a record crowd of 5,000 (they had expected 3,500), most of them elaborately costumed. The creepy crush was entertained by DJs Gracie Chavez and Dame Hype and by Molly & the Ringwalds. Four food trucks — Htown Streats, Waffle Bus, Good Dog Hot Dog, Chi'Lantro — keep the revelers well fed. Magician Ben Jackson kept the crowd guessing how he did it.
Who: Lorie and David Soderberg, Abby and Garrett Thornton, Lindsey Graham, Kayla and Kyle Suttle, Ashley and Sean O'Hara, Ian Chan, Danny Chan, Elizabeth Sants, Katie Broussard, Nick Cooney, Brooke Sidle, Brad Smith and David Wallace-Bradley.
