It’s time to start planning your costume for Fiesta Youth’s fourth annual Halloween Hocus Pocus fundraiser, slated for Saturday at Arbor House Suites in the heart of downtown.
The city’s only gay-owned bed and breakfast, Arbor House consists of four, 125-year-old two-story Queen Anne-style Colonial Revival homes with beautifully landscaped gardens. Partygoers (21 and up only) are invited to partake in finger food, an open bar, music, dancing and a silent auction — not to mention a costume contest with prizes for scariest, funniest, sexiest and most original costumes.
The mission of Fiesta Youth is to provide “a safe, non-judgmental, affirming place for LBGT teens to express and explore who they are through education, peer-support, advocacy and friendship.” Fiesta Youth also sponsors Fiesta U, a twice-monthly support group for young adults aged 18 to 24.
$25 in advance, $35 at the door, Saturday, October 21, 7:30pm-midnight, Arbor House Suites, 109 Arciniega St., (210) 802-1373, hocuspocussa.com.
