Green Lake’s spookiest party to die for — Town Square’s Spooktacular Bingo — is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 30 at 492 Hill St.. Doors and concessions open at 5 p.m., card sales begin at 5:30 and games start at 6:30.
“It’s a night filled with monster prizes and wicked-good fun,” said Phil Burkart, one of Town Square’s founders and legendary bingo caller. “People dress in themed costumes for nearly every bingo game, but Spooktacular Bingo is the time to go all out.”
The night features 13 games, plus speedy bingo and a progressive black out final game with the fang-tastic jackpot of $735 plus half the night’s progressive sales. The otherworldly event has become one of the community’s favorite way to celebrate Halloween, with prizes for the best costumes, door prizes throughout the night and a 50-50 raffle.
Concessions will be available for purchase in the ballroom’s new Jury Room Bar, including $2 Sheboygan hot dogs, chips, beer and wine. Carry-ins are prohibited. Attendees may arrive early to find seats before the games begin.
This month’s bingo game will be the first in Town Square’s ballroom following the sale of the safety building, where bingo had previously been held. The recently-renovated ballroom will be the new venue for bingo games moving forward.
Attendees should use Town Square’s main entrance. The rear handicap-accessible entrance also will be available, with elevator access to the ballroom.
Proceeds from the bingo games support Town Square, an award-winning community center located in the historic county courthouse buildings in the heart of downtown Green Lake.
The mission of Town Square Community Center is to enrich the lives of the Green Lake community members, family, and friends by providing cultural, social, recreational, educational and economic opportunities for people of all ages.
Town Square is operated by Green Lake Renewal, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
