Get your ghoulish groove on at Halloween Dance Party 6, with live music by local band Border Run at the 108 Community Hall, Oct. 27.

It promises to be a real fright night with a mix of great dance tunes from country to Led Zeppelin, says key co-ordinator Rob Fry from New Age Entertainment. He will be providing all-request canned music between the band’s sets to keep the action non-stop all night.

Create your creepiest costume because cash prizes will be awarded, with $300 going to first place, $200 to second and $100 to third place. There’s also a $500 cash prize for the best-dressed group of three or more.

Past years have seen some pretty spooktacular get-ups, so don’t be afraid to take out all the stops.

Door prizes and spot dances will add to the fun.

Bar service will be available, and to keep the energy flowing, people will have a selection of buns, meats and desserts to snack on, as they are included in the ticket price.

Fry wants people to take note of the venue change this year to the 108 Community Hall. The dance has traditionally been held at 100 Mile Community Hall, but he says a flea market event booked the venue ahead of him.

Fry says he’s looking forward to the change, though.

“I think it’s going to be a success this year. The venue change will be a good thing. It’s a short trip back home for a lot of people.”

A safe ride home service will be available during the evening.

The Wolf Radio host Larry Rode returns again this year as emcee, and Fry says he’s looking forward to working with him.

“We always have so much fun with it.”

Tickets for the dance are $25 and they’re available at Work n Play Clothing, Donex Pharmacy & Department Store and 108 Mile Supermarket. Fry says that part of the proceeds will be given to different charities, which will be determined at a later time.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and two pieces of identification will be required for entry. Minors will not be allowed in.
