Lakewood Mom And Son Dance Is Back For The Fourth Year!
What started as a casual conversation among some moms at Horace Mann Elementary evolved into a fun night out for hundreds of Lakewood families. Now in its fourth year, the Lakewood Mom & Son Rockin' Monster Mash will be held on Saturday, October 19 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm in the Lakewood High School gym and cafeteria.
"The Lakewood Father/Daughter dance was going strong and we wanted to offer a similar opportunity to moms and sons," said event co-chair Kristen Humphreys. "We've always had a rock & roll theme, and we recently added a Halloween element to amp up the fun."
The "Monster Mash" theme encourages attendees to dress up in Halloween costumes, wear t-shirts from rock bands and concerts, or even get dressed up in formal wear. The gathering encourages families of all kinds -- not just moms, and not just sons, either -- to be who they are and wear what they want. This year's event includes a maze in the LHS gym and a calm craft area outside of the gym for anyone who needs a break from the noise.
The event's low ticket prices starting at $15 for mom and one son cover admission and dinner, including chicken strips, pizza, salad, sweet treats, and beverages from Biggby Coffee. A VIP package is available for $50 and includes preferred parking, t-shirts, and more.
Tickets can be purchased online at https://my.cheddarup.com/c/lakewood-mom-son-dance-2019 or at Lakewood Discount Drug Marts. T-shirts featuring the event's colorful "Rockin' Monster Mash" logo can also be purchased at https://www.teepublic.com/user/hmesspiritwear.
"We will have the same popular attractions as before, including our toy and candy table, raffle baskets, and special Indians raffle," said event co-chair Debbie Baker. "Our monster MC will organize group dancing, contests and more. We want Lakewood families to enjoy their time together making great memories!"
