The Hudson Valley Boo Ball is a local Halloween tradition. Hundreds gathered at The Chance in Poughkeepsie Saturday to show off their Halloween costumes and take a shot at the $1,000 grand prize for best costume.

Our panel of secret judges determined winners in the funniest, scariest, sexiest, most original and best group costumes. When the time came we called each category winner to the stage and the crowd determined that 'Crater Face' from Futurama deserved the grand prize.

Thank you to The Chance Theater for hosting the party! We'd also like to thank our bands The Hype and Kulick along with our DJs from Music On Movie Fuzzy & Parag. Kevin McCurdy's Haunted Mansion provided all the amazing decorations. Our friends from Dutchess Beer Distributors and SK845 in Poughkeepsie were in the house too.

See you at Boo Ball 2020!
