San Felipe ZAPP Howl-o-ween Masquerade Ball
Halloween is a big deal in San Felipe. Last year, many parties and events happened in town during Halloween. For instance, the Tattoo Rose Cafe’ held an art exhibition by Adrena Joyce, with great “Day of the Dead” paintings and great food and costumes. Michael and Gail Gates hosted a fabulous costume party, and Denny and Sandi Flannigan had their Halloween bash at El Dorado Ranch; there was so much Halloween spirit and mystery that night---not to mention some really cool costumes, too.

This year, ZAPP is onboard with a “HOWL-O-WEEN MASQUERADE BALL & DANCE PARTY” at the BeachComber on the Malecon, Friday night, October 31st, from 7-11 p.m.---slated to be the scariest and most enjoyable event of them all!

There are dance and costume contests with great prizes to be won. Adrena Joyce will debut her new collection of “DAY of the DEAD” paintings. All this is in an effort to raise funds for ZAPP’s 2009 Spay/Neuter Project. Come on, join us and let’s party! Tickets are just $20. Do not miss it! We look forward to seeing you.
