The theme of the event is the abandoned Laughing Rabbit Toy Factory. Uncovered after decades at the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Building 77, attendees can follow the “large rabbit tracks and echoes of laughter” to the Halloween celebrations.

A portion of the proceeds collected from ticket sales for the event, the silent auction, and donations will go to City Harvest. 733 Collective’s goal is to raise $10,000 for the non-profit organization that feeds hungry New Yorkers.

The members of 733 Collective include architects, artists, designers, fabricators, event organizers, and storytellers who “specialize in all things Halloween,” according to the group’s website. The Collective started by organizing “backyard Halloween parties” and has grown to produce annual large-scale immersive experiences. Go to 733collective.com to learn more.
