Spooktacular Ball Set For The Stirling Club

Kelly Clinton"If you are looking for a tamer experience, there is only one place to go. The most exclusive club in Las Vegas will be hosting a Halloween Spooktacular Ball at The Stirling Club. Entertainment will be led by popular entertainer Kelly Clinton." — Tour Guy Field Guide.

Halloween has had plenty of facelifts over the years. It has been traced back to both the Roman festival of Parentalia and the Celtic festival of Samhain. Even the advent of wearing costumes and asking for candy has some old roots. Shakespeare even mentions it in his comedy The Two Gentlemen of Verona (1593).

In the play, Speed accuses his master of "puling [whimpering or whining] like a beggar at Hallowmas." In the United States, Halloween seems to have taken hold after a large immigration of Irish, Scottish, and English immigrants in 1920. Now, Halloween is slowly becoming recognized as a global event. And in Las Vegas, it is just as much an adult festival as it is for kids.

The Halloween Spooktacular Ball At The Stirling Club.

Organized by Kelly Clinton, the Stirling Club's Spooktacular Ball (wear a costume) has become one of the most time-honored traditions at The Stirling Club. There will be live entertainment, a DJ, games, food, drinks, and a costume contest. Not only does the ball attract some celebrity participants (unbeknownst to members), but the costume contest is judged by several surprise guests.

The Halloween Spooktacular Ball at The Stirling Club will begin at 8 p.m. in the Cigar Bar and Piano Lounge. Reservations are required and participation is $24.95 per person. (Non-members may request a pass by contacting Kathleen Gustafson at 702-784-4603.)

"This is a must-attend event as the costumes are always fantastic and the night takes on a life of its own," said Mike Saye, general manager of The Stirling Club. "Every year, this party grows in size and there will be some surprises you won't want to miss."

Concurrently, Clinton will also be performing her Saturday show, Kelly Clinton and Friends, between 8 p.m. and midnight, but the haunting tends to last longer. So, please do not be surprised to see ghouls, ghosts, and costumed guests roaming the property.
