Things to Do to Celebrate Halloween
Author: JOEL SELVIN

More than 5,000 ghouls, goblins, gremlins and other assorted weirdos are expected to attend the Eighth Exotic-Erotic Ball tomorrow night at the Concourse Pavilion, in what promises to be the city's most outlandish Halloween celebration.

Appearing in the main ballroom will be Zulu Spear, Miss Kitty and the Psycho Souls, Batucaje, and Dexter Devo and his Devo Dolls. The Psychedellos will present a '60s revue, and a variety of costume contests - featuring prize packages totaling $5,000 in cash and goods - will be awarded.
