    Special to The PREVIEW

    Halloween is a wicked time to celebrate and Pagosa Springs is going to get wild this Oct. 31 at the Center for the Arts’ first Monster’s Ball Halloween Bash.

    With decor you can only expect from a theatre and the hottest venue in town, the night is going to kick off at 6:30 p.m. just as the light is fading away and darkness starts to loom.

    Trick-or-treat drink specials will thrill or shock the gambler in everyone.

    A Tarot reader will awaken your deeper senses for those that dare to ask.

    Hauntingly delightful prizes will be awarded to the fanciest freaks in costumes.

    Finger foods  will satisfy the blood thirstiest of monsters.

    Unnaturally thrilling surprises await all the ghoulish guests.

    And there will be music. Oh yes, there will be music. The Jelly Belly Boogie Band will rock the center with a four-hour show of hip shaking rock-a-boogie that will set Pagosa dancing, twisted enough to wake the dead.  One of Durango’s favorite bands, the Jelly Belly’s play music from the ’40s and ’50s, and everything since that makes you want to shake it.  They are scary good.

    Tickets for the hottest event in Pagosa this fall are only $10 and can be purchased online at, over the phone at 731-SHOW, or with cash only at the door.

    Halloween only comes once a year and Halloween only strikes on Oct. 31.  Don’t miss the excitement at 2313 Eagle Drive, from 6:30 to 11 p.m.
