Night of the Living Dead Costume Ball to feature costume contest & charity auction

Pittsburgh, PA – June 28, 2010 – Zombies, vampires, ghosts and even humans are invited to don their scariest finery for the Night of the Living Dead Costume Ball. The ball, sponsored by Magic Hat Brewing, is the featured evening entertainment event at this year’s Horror Realm convention.
