This year a section of the venue will be dedicated to dance music and a dance floor, Schimmoeller explained. There will also be a main stage with entertainers and dancing. Schimmoeller also noted a special performance will occur around 10:30 p.m. that guests will not want to miss.
“I think what I’m most looking forward to this year is providing Dayton the party it deserves,” Schimmoeller said.
Schimmoeller particularly looks forward to guests figuring out how the theme of the event is woven into everything from the food and drinks to the performances and decorations.
Even though the event is considered a costume party, Schimmoeller said guests do not need to wear a costume to attend.
Masquerage will run until 1 a.m. An “After Party” is scheduled at the Stage Door, located at 44 N. Jefferson Street.
