Portland Maine – Ben Chipman, Candidate for Legislative District 119 will hold a Halloween Party at Empire Dine and Dance on Tuesday October 26th, 7-9pm.
Portland jazz-rock group Hobo will perform a spooky set of musical amalgamation with guitar, drums, and oboe. Local author Patrick Quinlan will tell ghost stories conjured up from his famed, blood curdling thrillers. Former Maine State Slam Champ Tina Smith will recite with her new joint – The Bo-Rap City Choir. Beth Blood owner of the former Suitsmi Costume Shop will appear as Celebrity Judge for Best Costume.
The event will include a costume party with prizes and a bobbing for apples tank – for the kid in you. A voter registration table will be open throughout the night as a way to reach out to all revelers, encouraging voter participation and civic involvement.
Campaign Treasurer Ashley Willems-Phaneuf says, “It’s a fun event and a way to reach out, perhaps to a younger crowd that traditionally has a lower voter turn out. We’ll get people registered and politically active.”
The event is free and open to the public aged 21+.
