Voodoo Island lures hundreds for annual Halloween event
This year’s Hallo’Tween Bash proved once again to be a screaming success as hundreds and hundreds of costumed party-goers from all over Florida — and beyond — attended the 16th annual event at ‘Tween Waters Inn.
“We had over 1,000 people,” said ‘Tween Waters General Manager Jeff Shuff. “And there were some great costumes — I bet 80 percent of the people there had costumes on. Everybody had a great time.”
The coveted first place prize in the costume contest went to Lonnie Earle, John Earle, Nancy Earle, Katie Earle, Ken Button, Jeanne Hogan and Matt Hogan for their creative ensemble costume inspired by artist C. M. Coolidge’s series of dogs playing poker and second place went to a man dressed as a Transformer.
While this was one of the most well-attended costume parties the resort has ever seen, ‘Tween Waters will host another extremely popular event the day after Thanksgiving.
The traditional ‘Tween Waters Christmas tree lighting ceremony — which includes fireworks, caroling and perhaps a visit from the man in the red suit — will take place on Friday, Nov. 26, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the resort.
‘Tween Waters Inn is located at 15951 Captiva Drive. For more information, call 472-5161 or go to ‘Tween Waters Inn.
