A tricky night-time rave hits Hialeah (includes video story)

Hocus Pocus, the three-day Halloween-themed rave, returned this year at Hialeah’s Factory Town, a multi-acre outdoor space. There were thousands of guests in attendance.

The electronic music event was held from Oct. 27-29 and had 12-hour raves that lasted from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. each night.

Guest attendees were able to buy three-day tickets or single-day tickets.

“I know John Summit is coming but it’s gonna be at 6 in the morning and I have school at 9 so it’s not gonna work,” Barry University student Viviana Corbisiero said. “Today 2 to 3 hours is enough.”
