We are conjuring up a night of spooky fun for Witches & Warlocks Halloween Bash from 2 to 11pm on Saturday, Oct. 28, featuring family-friendly festivities, craft beer and a wicked good time to benefit childhood cancer care.
Hosted in partnership with Tia’s Kitchen, the spooktacular event will include a food truck competition, costume contests, specialty beers on tap and other fun Halloween activities with howling tunes by DJ Nate from 3 to 7pm and Halie Long Live Band from 7 to 10pm.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Barbara’s Friends – Golisano Children’s Hospital Cancer Fund. The fundraiser will help ensure that programs and services are available for local children diagnosed with cancer at the hospital, providing support for the needs of patients, clinical trials, counseling, equipment, facilities, staffing and family assistance.
We are casting a spell and brewing up a series of Halloween-themed beers for the occasion, including Gateway Ghouls (Gateway Blonde), Fort Myers Fright (Fort Myers Light), RedRum (Red Tape), Howl 5 (High 5) and Wizardly Wheat (American Wheat). There will also be both regular and frozen cocktails available, including a Pumpkin Spice Paloma and a Zombie cocktail.
Throughout the evening, enjoy mystical delights from local food truck favorites CakeBar by Geo’s Cakery, Cositas Gourmet, Dawgs in Paradise, Kasia’s Taste of Poland, Luna’s Little Cheese Emporium, Pryceless Island Grill, South Pizza Co. and Sue’s Crepes. A panel of local celebrity judges will name winners in several categories: Sweet, Savory, Judges’ Choice and Overall. The Savory and Sweet awards will be announced between 6 – 6:30pm while the Peoples’ Choice will be selected by YOU, and awarded and presented with the Judges Choice from 8:30 to 9pm.
Come dressed in your spookiest or silliest attire with two costume contests taking place throughout the evening. Judging will take place from 6 to 6:30pm for the children’s costume contest and from 8:30pm – 9pm for the adult costume contest. Prizes will be presented after each judging.
Stay tuned for more wickedly fun details as we get closer the the event.
