Winery's popular Hallo-wine Spooktacular
Halloween costume party is Saturday, October 29.
This year's theme is Rockstars: Passed and Present.
(Interlaken, NY) Halloween in the Finger Lakes wouldn’t be complete without Americana Vineyards Winery's annual Hallo-wine Spooktacular. The winery has a frightfully entertaining evening planned for their guests on Saturday, October 29, from 8:00pm until the clock strikes midnight.
"Every year we have a theme, and this year it's Rockstars: Passed and Present," announced Joe Gober, the winery’s charismatic owner. "We lost so many greats this year, we wanted to pay homage."
This annual event is in its fourteenth year and is a Finger Lakes tradition, drawing return guests from all over the Finger Lakes and as far as Rochester and Syracuse. "We've been getting calls since July asking about the theme," explains Butch Newhart, the winery's Director. "People can't wait to start getting their costumes together."
While it's not mandatory to come in costume, most people do. And this year, there will be a costume contest with three categories: Best Female Rockstar, Best Male Rockstar and Best Rock Group. Winners will be selected around 10:30 and each will receive a gift basket of Americana Wine and other ghoulish goodies.
In addition to the eye-candy a great costume party creates, there will be the famous herd of pumpkins carved by the winery staff the week before the party. Music will be provided by Elephant Sound. And, as always, Crystal Lake Café will be providing fiendishly good treats, with the winery selling wine by the bottle or glass, and beer by the pint or growler.
“The first glass of wine is on us!” Joe points out.
Attendance is limited to 400 guests who must be 21 or over. Admission is just $15 per person, and $10 for wine industry employees and the winery's Patriots Club members. People are strongly encouraged to RSVP or buy their tickets in advance as soon as possible by calling 888-600-8067.
Joe invites everyone to come out, “If you've never been to this party, you're in for such a good time! And if you're coming for a second, third or even fourteenth year, we're so excited to have you back!”
