Halloween weekend will be here before you know it. Check out these five celebrations and get those costumes ready!

1. Adventures in Wonderland
During this time of year, Bâoli Miami hosts a Halloween version of its weekly My Boyfriend Is Out of Town party and this month, the theme is Malice in Wonderland, inspired by Lewis Carroll’s trippy fairy tale. Guests have to follow a tea-party dress code, which means fellows must don suits and top hats and ladies get to channel their inner Queen of Hearts or innocent Alice. Go down the rabbit hole if you dare! Oct. 26, 7PM, tickets $65-$150, 1906 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.674.8822 

2. Costume Party
The Biltmore Hotel is kicking off the spooky shenanigans early this year with the property’s Annual Halloween Party. The event features an open bar, a decadent dinner and live entertainment. Guests will have the chance to compete in a costume contest that will crown the couple with the most creative and scariest get-up of the evening. Oct. 28, 8PM, tickets $80-$120, 1200 Anastasia Ave., Coral Gables, 855.311.6903

3. Quiet Please
Dress in your very best and take in the views at the Epic Hotel for a Halloween-themed silent sunset rooftop party. Each guest who arrives at the Fear the Silence fete will receive a pair of headphones and will be able to choose between of variety of music channels broadcasting music by various DJs so they can dance to the beat of their own drum—quite literally. Oct. 29, 5PM, tickets $20, 270 Biscayne Blvd. Way, Miami, 305.424.5226

4. Death Becomes Them
A good time for a good cause! The Little Lighthouse Foundation is hosting its annual Nightmare on the Beach charity bash right on the sands of South Beach once again, and combining two holidays into one massive fiesta. This year’s Dia De Los Muertos theme celebrates Mexico’s popular Day of the Dead. Expect various pavilions and tents, costumed performers and many other surprises. Killer costumes are a must! Oct. 29, 9PM, tickets $175, Lummus Park, 9th Street and Ocean Drive, Miami Beach

5. Haunted Mansion
Celebrating the witching hour in one of Miami’s oldest estates has a nice ring to it. The 30th annual Halloween Sundowner at Vizcaya Museum & Gardens never disappoints. This year’s soiree features a Prohibition theme, which means guests will be transported back to the Roaring Twenties with gothic-glam decor and lively entertainment. Five full bars, a spirited costume contest and the backdrop of Biscayne Bay will make for an evening to remember. Oct. 29, 8PM, tickets $140-$250, 3251 S. Miami Ave., Miami, 305.250.9133
