Heads to spin at Freaker’s Ball

From page B8 | October 26, 2012 | 2 Comments

STATELINE, Nev. — A $10,000 cash prize and a wild night full of surreal costume get-ups are guaranteed to make more than a few heads spin as the 34th annual Freaker’s Ball returns to MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa. The Lake Tahoe legendary Halloween event is Saturday, Oct. 27.

For more than three decades, Tahoe South has hosted the largest, weirdest Halloween costume party, long considered one of the West Coast favorites.

Spread out over three MontBleu venues — Opal, Blu and the Convention Center — party goers can get one admission ticket and get in on the lunacy that drives this freaky gathering of costumed misfits until the sun comes up.

Besides all the flair, farce, crack-ups and contests that give the Freaker’s Ball its attitude, MontBleu will unleash new venues including The Haunted Zone and Party Pit to add to the already outrageous lineup. And of course it wouldn’t be a Freaker’s Ball without exotic go-go dancers, spooked-out decor, freakish cocktail concoctions and the funky fashion costume contest with a $10,000 purse.

The revelry is wild with past costumes known to feature the likes of a 16-foot clown, Lady Gaga lookalikes, the entire Addams Family, decks of playing cards, a human lobster bib and dozens of zombified super heroes.

Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased online at or or call 888-829-7630.

    Yes, best party EVER !!!! And for the last few years they have been allowing topless and nearly bottomless , beautiful, women to come prancing through. I drool. I'll probably get deleted, but it is true. Remember my first admendment rights, please.

    As predicted, the party last night was really GREAT. I've been to almost every one since 1980. All of the topless girls walked past so quickly that I didn't get such a great view. I did note something a little different. I saw at least nine women, drunk, passed out, being draged out of the casino by friends or security. Three were covered in their own vomit, and at least one vomited in the elevator. FUN party.
