Now that Autumn is upon us it’s time to get ready for the highest of high holidays on the Queer calendar, Saturday, October 31st. Yup, that’s right, Halloween is coming fast and we’re celebrating with our Halloween Hullabaloo!
We’re going all out for this one by staging it at one of the city’s best halls – the Cabaret Room at the Best Western Parkway Inn, 1515 Vincent Massey Drive. (Click on this Mapquest link for directions if you’re coming from out of town. You can also visit their own website at www.bestwesterncornwall.com.) Admission is $10.00 at the door, which will open at9:00 pm. You must be of legal drinking age (19) for admittance. We’ll be handing out prizes for outstanding costumes and we’ll be putting on our usual 50/50 draw. We’ve also got a few other surprises up our sleeves which we’re sure will thoroughly delight you. If you’re on Facebook, feel free to sign on to the event listing we’ve created via this link.
Jumpin’ Jim Landriault of Polar Sound will be our DJ for the evening and is eager to take your requests. If there’s anything you’d like to hear, visit the music page on Polar Sound’s website by clicking on this link where you’ll find his complete discography. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday, October 25th to find out how you can request a tune in advance of the party. (Due to time limits, all requests are on a “play if possible” basis. One request per person, please.)
This event marks the start of a new chapter in Pride/Fierté Cornwall’s history. You’ll likely remember that this was to be Pride’s last ever function before disbanding. Instead, thanks to the initiatives of some very inventive and passionate young adults in the Queer community, (the Keeping Cornwall Pridafull initiative) it’s going to be a celebration of new life and a new energy. Pride has recently elected a new executive committee which is largely made up of members of Keeping Cornwall Pridafull. This will be the party where they’re introduced.
Please come if you can and be sure to spread the word.
