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 or at Lakewood Discount Drug Marts. T-shirts featuring the event's colorful "Rockin' Monster Mash" logo can also be purchased at  

"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!"  

Tickets will not be available at the door, so hurry and buy yours today! Questions? Contact
