Bella Coola Valley Music Festival Society Halloween Dance kicks off October 29 – Coast Mountain News
Halloween fans will be delighted to hear that the Bella Coola Valley Musical Festival Society is hosting a dance at Lobelco Hall on Saturday, October 29.
“Halloween is such a fun time to have a community event,” said Rose Clark, BCVMFS member and one of the dance organizers.
“The festival team transforms the community hall into a spooky space, people are encouraged to dress up and local DJ Terry Elliott will keep everyone dancing the night away.”
Clark said it was a pleasure to be able to organize a community dance after so long and not being able to fundraise for the past two years has been a challenge for the company.
Last year, the festival held a virtual concert, but virtual events do not generate revenue or replace gatherings with the community to dance and celebrate, she added.
“This year more than ever, it feels like the Valley is ready for a good time.”
The costumes could win a prize for dance lovers.
This year’s costume contest has three categories: scariest costume, best group or couple costume, and most creative costume.
Tickets are available in advance for $20 at Mountain Valley Organics and Kopas Store. If tickets do not sell, they will be available at the door for $25.
As the event is licensed, IDs will be checked at the gate as attendees must be 19 years old.
The community bus is available to get people home safely for $5 per person.
