    Under the Stars: 2017 Block Party (Oct. 20th)

    Get ready for the most gnarly costume contest at this year’s Block Party! It’s going to be radical! It’s the 1980’s and that means Michael Jackson and Madonna are rockin’ your mix tapes, Molly Ringwald is on the big screen, and mullets and mile high bangs are totally tubular!

    Gag me with a spoon if you leave the leg warmers at home! This is a chance to celebrate the 1980’s in style, dude!

    The details: During the block party, report at SHARP to the left of the stage to participate! Be there or be square! There is even a rumor that there might be some “celebrity judges” – TO THE MAX!

    Prizes for the best costume in the following categories:

    • I Think We’re Alone Now – best solo costume
    • We are the World- best group costume
    • I Love Rock N Roll – best 80’s hair band costume
    • The Ferris Bueller– best 1980’s big screen character(s)
    • Into the Groove – Best 1980’s overall look award
    • The Thriller  – Best Scary 80’s costume
