Halloween Party and Movie Night at the Legion

title

Mark your calendars, here is a chance to try out your Halloween costume before tricks or treats! Friday, October 28 the Ely American Legion will host a costume party and movie for kids of all ages. There will be treats, all kinds of fun and a not too spooky movie.

Welcome to Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up and no humans are allowed. One special weekend, Dracula (Adam Sandler) has invited all his best friends – Frankenstein and his wife, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, the Werewolf family, and more – to celebrate his beloved daughter Mavis’s (Selena Gomez) 118th birthday. For Dracula catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem but the party really starts when one ordinary guy stumbles into the hotel and changes everything!

The fun starts at 6:00 pm. Wear your Halloween costume and bring a friend.

We have plenty of chairs but kids are welcome to bring blankets, pillows or whatever for the movie.

Price: Free for all!
