Heads to spin at Freaker’s Ball

By From page B8 | October 26, 2012

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.
