Talking Stick: Wicked Ball
October 31, 2015 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm UTC+0
It’s that time again all you witches, goblins and goons! Talking Stick Resort is celebrating Halloween with its annual Wicked Ball event on Oct. 31. Hosted in the property’s Salt River Grand Ballroom, the event will feature live entertainment, a variety of performers and decked-out characters vying for top honors in the costume contest. At the end of the night, the remaining 10 finalists will win a share of $10,000. But that’s not all — as the Halloween party will also showcase EDM, trance and Top 40 hits all night long!
In its second year, the Halloween bash will feature three rooms complete with cocktail specials and variety acts. Each room will showcase a different theme, vibe and musical style so guests will get to experience three parties for the price of one! Lady La from LIVE 101.5 will keep the party rocking in the main room, serving as the costume contest’s emcee. The top 10 costume contest finalists will take home cash with the first place winner earning $3,500. Advanced general admission tickets are $50 while VIP tickets are $90. General admission tickets purchased on the day of the event are $60. “Day of” VIP tickets are $100 and include six drinks.
Additionally, guests can purchase a cabana at RELEASE any Saturday this month and receive 10 VIP Wicked Ball tickets, which includes six drinks and access to the VIP areas (a $900 value).
