Eat, drink and be scary at downtown Bartlesville’s third annual Main Street Mash dance party at 8 p.m. Oct. 27 at the Hilton Garden Inn Ball Room. Winner of 2016’s Event of the Year, Main Street Mash is a delightfully ghoulish night of dancing to the pop sounds of the band Zodiac.


“Each year this event continues to grow. The crowds get bigger and the costumes more elaborate,” said Bo Wilson, event chair. “This event is a place for adults to come as the Halloween character of their choice, have fun and support downtown.”


There will be cash prizes for costumes in four categories — Best Male, Best Female, Best Couple and Best Group. Satisfy your hunger at the complimentary taco bar and slake your thirst for some wicked brew at the cash bar. Don’t be afraid to try your luck at the 50/50 raffle.


Professional portraits in front of a spooktacular backdrop and groovy dance shots will be taken by Mark Blumer Photography.


Have a taste for the macabre? Come for the thrills and chills of frightful film classics played by the Bartlesville Film Society, and experience terrifyingly real animatronic creations by Danny Joe Walsh.


Shake your ghoul thing all night long then stay for a spell. A limited number of discounted hotel rooms will be available for $79 at the Hilton Garden Inn.


Tickets are $25 in advance and $35 at the door. Attendees must be 21, and all proceeds benefit downtown Bartlesville. For tickets, call (918) 214-8500 or follow us on Facebook at facebook.com/DowntownBartlesville. If you have any questions, contact us at info@bartlesvilledowntown.org.
