You’re Invited to the Annual Masquerade Party
October 23, 2015
8:00p.m. to midnight
One of my favorite Broadway songs is “Masquerade” from the Phantom of the Opera: “Masquerade! Paper faces on parade . . .Masquerade! Hide your face, so the world will never find you!”
There’s a special kind of intrigue and excitement that comes with a masquerade party, which is why the Adams County Art Council’s (ACAC) Annual Masquerade Party is the best ticket in town this fall. Where else can you be dressed in your costumed best, enjoy great food, sip fabulous drinks, bid in a brilliant silent auction, and partake in a friendly competitive karaoke jam or two?
Never been to the Party? No problem! I interviewed Chris Glatfelter, Executive Director of the ACAC, for the inside scoop on this must-attend event of the season:
EL: How did you curate this year’s Masquerade Party Theme, “Rock Star?”
CG: The Masquerade Party committee wanted a theme that everyone could have fun with—and I think they found the right one!
EL: How many years has the ACAC hosted the Party?
CG: 15 years
EL: What can people expect from this year’s Party?
CG: Guests can dance the night away with crowd favorite Colgan Hirsh Band with the Slammin’ Horns. We will also hold the ever popular Costume Contest Conga Line with cash prizes and a fabulous silent auction. New this year is a Karaoke Contest….you can’t have rock stars without a little singing, right?
You can still purchase a ticket for this rockin’ event – just call 717-334-5006!
Something news-worthy always occurs at the Party, so you won’t want to miss it! Last year, a man proposed to his girlfriend (who happened to be wearing a real pumpkin on her head) right on the dancefloor! They have reserved their table again for this year.
Can’t make it this Friday? ACAC always welcomes donations and support from the community in many ways.
