Just yesterday (September 15th), the Cedar Rapids Haunted Halloween Ball made a big announcement on social media. The big annual event is officially a go for 2022!

We don't know much about the 7th annual Cedar Rapids Haunted Halloween Ball just yet, but they did reveal a few key details. First of all, the event is set for Saturday, October 29th at the DoubleTree by Hilton Convention Complex in Downtown Cedar Rapids. It will be run by the same committee and have the same vendors as always, but this year, there will be a different band. The Pork Tornadoes typically play the event, but now another band will take its place. The post reads:

"We're baaaaaaaaaack

Same great party. Same committee and vendors.

Different band!?!?Mark your calendar for Oct. 29th at the DoubleTree"

The band set to play the Haunted Halloween Ball is The Schmidt Brothers, who played the event as the opening act last year!

The other thing we know right now is that the ball will have some sort of sea theme. I'm guessing that we can expect to see lots of pirates, ships, and sea monsters throughout the venue.

There's no word yet on when tickets for the Cedar Rapids Haunted Halloween Ball will go on sale or how much they will cost, but we can expect more details in the near future. The event typically sells out, so it's best to get your tickets early to ensure yourself a spot. You can watch for more updates on the Cedar Rapids Haunted Halloween Ball Facebook page HERE.

If you missed the news, another big Cedar Rapids Halloween event will return this year... the Cedar Rapids Halloween Parade! You can read more about that HERE.

LOOK: How Halloween has changed in the past 100 years

Stacker compiled a list of ways that Halloween has changed over the last 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear trick-or-treating. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that changed the ways that Halloween was celebrated over time. Many of these traditions were phased out over time. But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
