Funfest to Host 80's Throwback Party

The 1980s come back to life this weekend as Funfest 2013 gets underway.
The 1980s come back to life this weekend as Funfest 2013 gets underway.  The theme of this year’s event is “A Totally 80s Weekend,” and to mark the event, Funfest Entertainment Chairman Mike Sosar will host the “Eighties Throwback Party” on Saturday, September 7 beginning at 5:30 and Sunday, the 8th beginning at 5:00 at the Greater Hazleton Health Alliance Performance Area at Broad and Wyoming Street.
“We’re encouraging everyone to tease up your hair, dress in your best 80s outfit, and come join the fun,” Sosar said.  “It’s going to be a great party, with all of the best 80s music, plus trivia contests and much more.”  Prizes will be given out throughout the party.
Saturday’s Party will feature an 80s “Name that Tune” and “You Sing the Lyrics” Contest.  On Sunday, the big contest will be “You Show Us the 80s,” with everyone encouraged to dress for the 80s.  “You can dress as a typical 80s material girl, as Magnum P.I., or as ‘Alf,’ as long as it’s 80s themed,” Sosar said.  Grand prizes for both nights will be a set of tickets to see 80s tribute band “Jessie’s Girl” at Penn’s Peak October 18th.
The 80s Throwback Party will kick off both nights with an eighties inspired dance routine by the Elite Dance Company. 
“There’s much to celebrate about the 80s, from the music to the pop culture,” Sosar said.  “We will be bringing it all back to life during our Party, which we feel is the perfect end to both evenings of Funfest Weekend.” The Party will continue both nights until 7:00 p.m.
