In a nod to local author Elizabeth George Speare’s Newberry Award-winning novel, Wethersfield Historical Society presents The Witch of Blackbird Pond Ball. On Saturday, October 29 from 6:30 pm – 10:30 pm, join the society and your friends and neighbors in the elegant ballroom of the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center (200 Main Street, Wethersfield). The Keeney Ballroom will be arrayed in seasonal finery designed to complement the eerie late-October atmosphere by Circa Antiques & Collectibles’ Melinda Robidoux. (Special spooky effects are planned for the ballroom that will be revealed for the first time at this unique event). The Ball features local refreshments, music, dancing, cocktails, potions, and other spellbinding activities! Attendees are encouraged to come in period dress (17th century) or the era of your choice. Those who do so will be automatically entered in the costume contest. iHeartMedia’s Renee DiNino will emcee the ball and keep the fun rolling all evening long. A professional DJ has been engaged to provide the soundtrack for dancing and all the evening’s festivities. Ascot Catering will be on hand to provide delectable hors d’oeuvres for your enjoyment throughout the evening. Two drinks are included with admission to this 21-and-over event and a cash bar will be available for those who are still thirsty.
Tickets for this exclusive event are $75 per person. For the truly adventurous, there are a limited number of Special Patron Hour Tickets which entitle the bearer to early admission at 5:30 pm for $100 per person. These patrons will enjoy uniquely prepared libations and delectable treats that will only be available during this magical hour.
