Season-changing chores can wait. It’s time for Quinault Beach Resort and Casino’s annual Halloween Weekend Bash on October 27-31. With more than $21,000 of cash prizes and loads of specials, free game play, and the scream-tastic Nightmare Ball, you can afford to hire someone to rake leaves and clean your gutters.
Creative Marketing Coordinator Nicolette Shanklin promises this will be a year to remember. “Oh my gosh, we have so much! It’s the largest Halloween we’ve done!”Prepare to win Coffins of Cash on Thursday and Friday, October 27 and 28. Q-Club gaming members earning 250 base points will be entered into drawings for coffins from the on-site graveyard…and those coffins won’t be empty. With drawings on the hour from 5:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. both days, lucky participants could win free game play. Cash prizes will also be awarded and one winner will take home $5,000 in cash.
Saturday, October 29, is the ghoulish Nightmare Ball. From 9:00 p.m. until midnight, put on your finest costume and enjoy finger foods (with or without real fingers), a commemorative cup filled to the brim with Blood Bath Brew, and entry into the costume contest for only $20.
Kiss Army, the ultimate KISS tribute band, will go on stage around the Kiss of Death Costume Contest. Prizes of $500 will be awarded for the Best Couple, Scariest, and Most Original costumes with $1,000 going to Best Group and Sexiest Costume.
Please note that costumes may not include weaponry, and face paint and masks are not allowed on the casino floor.
On arrival at the Nightmare Ball, all costumes will be photographed while judges mingle to choose their top five favorite costumes. At 11:30 p.m., finalists congregate on the dance floor for the exuberant audience to choose winners. Check the Quinault Beach Facebook page afterward for your boo-tiful—or scary—photo. Who says holiday cards must include ugly sweaters?
Survivors of the Ball can stagger down to a Zombie Buffet Brunch from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 30. Pair this with 5x Monster Multipliers on games from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Too tired to drag your corpse home? Book a discounted stay in the hotel at either the Quinault Beach Resort or nearby Quinault Sweet Grass Hotel. Use room code HAL2 for a two-night stay with two free Zombie Brunch tickets.
For the entire month of October, aficionados of glitz, glam, or gore can enter the Great Pumpkin Social Media Contest with prizes of free play galore. Simply submit a photo in all your Halloween glory through their Facebook portal to be judged online. Participants will be judged in categories of scariest costume, most original costume, sexiest female costume, sexiest male costume, best couples costume, and best group costume.
On Monday, October 31, the photos with the most likes on Facebook, Twitter, and more will be tallied and winners announced at 7:00 p.m. You must be present to win one of fifteen total awards.
