LANSING, Ill. (October 21, 2019) – The Village of Lansing is hosting “Halloween Spooktacular Under the Pavilion”—a costume-themed Halloween party for partygoers 21 and older—on Saturday, October 26, 7:00–10:30pm at the Fox Pointe pavilion.

The ticket price for the event ($25 per person presale; $30 at the door) includes dinner provided by JJ Kelley’s, open bar drinks, and music provided by DJ Fox. Though costumes are optional, three cash prizes will be awarded for “Best Costumes” of the night:

  • 1st Place – $75
  • 2nd Place – $50
  • 3rd Place – $25

Individuals, couples, or groups may participate in the costume contest, with each separate prize awarded to or split among the winning costume theme participant(s).

The Village sees the Spooktacular as an opportunity to exhibit the Fox Pointe pavilion as an event venue in its own right, beyond its regular use as sheltered seating for the Fox Pointe amphitheatre. The pavilion will be enclosed, decorated, and lit to create a festive and colorful atmosphere with room for party guests, DJ music, and dance floor. Portable outdoor heaters will provide warmth in autumn evening temperatures, and to ensure safety, the pavilion area will be fenced off and monitored by security.

Mayor Patty Eidam states, “We look forward to hosting one more event at Fox Pointe for the 2019 season and showcasing the potential of the pavilion as a featured aspect of the venue.”

The $25 presale tickets can be purchased now through Friday, October 25 at the Lansing Municipal Center, 3141 Ridge Road. Tickets can also be bought the night of the event for $30.

Fox Pointe is located at 18138 Henry Street in Lansing. The pavilion is at the southwest corner of the property.
