KILLINGTON, Vermont — The Wobbly Barn Steakhouse opens for its 44th season with the annual Halloween Costume Party on Wednesday, October 31, 2007. As in the past, proceeds from the event will benefit the Killington Volunteer Fire and Rescue Squad: Sherburne First Response.
Over the years, the money donated to the Fire Department from the Wobbly’s Halloween bash has been used for volunteer training and to buy equipment to service the Killington area.
“While Killington’s official population is around 1,000 registered residents, the number of visitors to the Killington Resort area can climb to some 20,000 people on a given busy winter weekend,” said Jason Evans, manager of The Wobbly Barn. “That number of people demands a very well-equipped fire and rescue department. This is our way of letting community members and visitors contribute back into their own community in a fun atmosphere. It’s also a way of showing support for our local heroes.”
The Wobbly Barn’s Halloween Costume Party this year will feature the music of Joey Leone’s Chop Shop, a high-energy rock and roll band. As always, costumes are required for entry, along with a $10 suggested donation.
“This year’s party will be bigger, better and loonier than ever,” said Evans. “On a Wednesday night the locals will come out the woodwork with the best costumes, and of course the ski house folks will come into town to start the season off right!”
The party begins in the nightclub at 8 p.m. Costume prizes in various categories will be awarded by The Wobbly Barn judges. Those judges also give out a grand prize of one Killington/Pico 2007-2008 Season Pass to the individual with the most creative costume.
The Wobbly Barn Steakhouse will reopen for the 2007 -2008 Friday November 2nd. Featuring the best steaks, fresh seafood, and mesquite grilled barbeque along with the world famous soup, salad and bread bar.
