RUMFORD — Members of the High School band Standby are teaming up with Scot and Cindy Grassette of 49 Franklin to throw a High School Halloween Bash from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31.

The chemical-free party will include a $100 first prize for best costume and other prizes and activities.

49 Franklin owner Scot Grassette said, “I don’t ever remember a costume party when I was in school.”

He spoke with Ronnie Russell who was recently featured in the play “Come Back to the 5 and Dime Jimmy Dean” in the Mystic Theater and found out there still isn’t much for organized activities for teens on Halloween night.

Russell plays bass in the band Standby, with JT Greene on lead guitar, Samantha Shorey on vocals and Kaleb Gatchell on drums. The band plays classic rock ‘n’ roll from the 1980s, 1990s and today.

Between sets, Grassette will rock out today’s best dance music with black light that will fill the room along with fog, snow and an array of lighting. He will also host a dance contest and the costume contest featuring a $100 prize to the first place winner. There will also be palm reading by Tocs Ettessarg. Each session is part of the admission and takes three minutes per student if they like.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with events starting at 7 p.m. All local high school students are welcome to attend. Admission at the door is $10; $8 for those in costume.
