A party with a bite: Attend the Vampire Ball
Heidelberg's famous Vampire Ball will be celebrating its 40th anniversary this month. The annual event consistently draws a mixed group of more than 2,000 costumed guests from all over the world, including 300 to 400 Americans living overseas. A cross between Halloween and German Fasching, the Vampire Ball gives guests an opportunity to show off their costumes and creativity while celebrating long into the night with live music and tantalizing beverage specialities, such as "blood cocktails."
