Halloween at The Stanley Hotel

Twin Terror Weekends

The Historic Stanley Hotel Announces it’s Biggest Halloween Lineup Ever with its Twin Terror Weekends to celebrate the 2016 Halloween season.  Widely recognized as one of the “most haunted hotels”, The Stanley Hotel plans to enliven the spirits of its visitors and more “permanent guests” with its biggest events of the year.

The Halloween celebrations kick-off with an evening of ghostly gastronomy at the Redrum Mystery Dinner on Friday, October 21st. A theatrical presentation of murder and suspense leavened with humor explores suspects throughout the room in the context of a delicious 4-course meal hosted in the Victorian-style MacGregor Ballroom. Executive Chef Robert Corey will delight diners with a special gourmet dinner presentation of new American cuisine as they are entertained by the mysterious investigation unfolding around them.

Saturday, October 22, 2016, wildly popular, The Shining Ball, returns to the Concert Hall featuring a live performance by the award-winning North Mississippi All Stars.  Participants will compete for prizes with imaginative, macabre and daring costumes that will be paraded through the hotel…so dress to impress. Festive hors d’oeuvres, delightful drink, dancing and cavorting among the imaginative, Shining-themed decor will bring new chills to the hottest night of the Halloween season.

The second of the Twin Terror Weekends will start with the iHeart Media hosted Boo Bash at The Concert Hall on Friday, October 28th followed by the Halloween Masquerade Party Saturday, October 29th. Both evenings will feature live music, dancing, drinks and abundant hors d’oeuvres and imaginative Halloween costumes.  This spooky double-header is the best way to slay the Halloween season.
