From a press release:

One of the biggest Halloween parties in Northeastern Pennsylvania is back by popular demand and better than ever. The Boo Bash returns to Mohegan Sun Pocono in Wilkes-Barre on Friday, Oct. 29 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), this free, no-cover celebration of spooky fun features a live performance by Drop Dead Sexy and a costume contest. Guests who bring their Halloween A-game will be awarded over $5,000 in cash prizes.

Registration for the costume contest takes place right outside the Keystone Grand Ballroom from 8 p.m.-10 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for “scariest,” “sexiest,” “most casino,” and “most original” costumes. First place in each category takes home $500 cash, second place receives $250, and third place gets $150. The best overall costume wins $1,000. Plus, guests should be sure to dance by the stage, as the band will pick their favorite costume of the night and the winner will receive $500. All winners will be announced at 11 p.m.

Drop Dead Sexy will rock the stage with the best music from Queen to Lady Gaga to Bon Jovi to Michael Jackson. As the premier party band on the East Coast, they have been entertaining audiences with their over-the-top stage show and extensive and creative song repertoire for over a decade. With a plethora of stage props and frequent costume changes, Drop Dead Sexy uses anything and everything they can get their hands on to ensure that a long-lasting and memorable experience is had by all.

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. Costume photos will be taken upon registration. Costumes are not required to attend.
