Halloween Plans Brewing at The LEX
Activities at The LEX have kept board members hopping the last few weeks, and there is no end in sight. The second annual Boo Bash promises to be a monster event with a costume contest and Kansas City’s up and coming country band, Hudson Drive.
According to one of Lexington’s talented guitar players, Jonathan Morris, a fan of the band, Hudson Drive’s reputation is building rapidly with their fun Facebook Live Stream sessions on Thursday nights, openings for some of today’s hottest country main stream acts, or their appearances of FOX 4 KC. Lexington residents may remember seeing Brian Folkers and Quinton McDannald with The Mickey Finn Band when they played at Tate’s Place. These guys have added another guitar player, Taylor McKnight, and drummer and singer Brian McRoberts to make up the Hudson Drive band that have the same engaging, up-tempo type show as before.
Costumes are encouraged at the Boo Bash, and will be judged on originality, creativity, and popularity. Devils, witches, angels, monsters, mascots, historical figures, and ghostly costumes are all about Halloween, a time when no one ever outgrows the opportunity to play dress-up. Catch the spirit, join the fun, and be treated to some “boo-tiful” decorations.
The Halloween Boo Bash is from 8:00 p.m. to midnight on Oct. 28 at The LEX, 111 S. 11th Street. Tickets are available for $12 in Lexington at the Chamber of Commerce, 1016 Main Street, the Tourism Bureau, 1110 Main, Papa Jack’s Pizza, 1014 Main, and on line at www.thelexcenter.org. The event is being supported by Big Muddy Ice Cream Company, Christine Company Real Estate, Lexington Preservation Foundation, and Gallery 1029, LLC. The Boo Bash is sponsored by the Lexington Auditorium Association, a non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide a facility for public use in support of economic growth, to improve quality of life by providing community, activities, while also preserving, maintaining and improving the historically significant auditorium.
