From a press release:

One of the biggest Halloween parties in Northeastern Pennsylvania is back by popular demand. The Boo Bash returns to Mohegan Sun Pocono in Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 8 p.m.-11 p.m.

Held in the Keystone Grand Ballroom in the Convention Center at Mohegan Sun Pocono (1280 Highway 315, Wilkes-Barre), DJae Mêlée from Connecticut will have guests dancing the night away and over $5,000 in cash prizes will go out to the guests who bring their Halloween A-game to the costume contest.

Registration for the contest takes place right outside the Keystone Grand Ballroom from 8 p.m.-10 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for the “scariest,” “sexiest,” “most casino,” and “most original” costumes. First place in each category takes home $500 cash, second place receives $250, and third place receives $150. The best overall costume wins $1,000.

Plus, guests should be sure to dance by the DJ booth, as DJae Mêlée picks his favorite costume of the night; that winner will receive $500! All winners will be announced at 11 p.m.

Guests must be 21 or older with valid ID to attend this event. Masks and full face paint are only allowed in the event space.
