Halloween will be bigger and better this year as Talking Stick Resort celebrates with its 5th annual Wicked Ball on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018. In addition to welcoming EDM superstars, Nervo, the event’s much-anticipated costume contest will introduce new categories and $10,000 in prizes.

Kicking off at 9 p.m. in the resort’s Salt River Grand Ballroom, Wicked Ball will have multiple dance floors, a carnival room and an outdoor ultra-lounge. Each area will have music, live performances and special cocktails. Joey Boy, Natasha Castles and Aneesh from LIVE 101.5’s “Morning Mess” will emcee the popular costume contest, while Nervo, and special guest, Ummet Ozcan, will keep the party going outside with their top dance hits.

This year, Wicked Ball has introduced new categories for its popular costume contest. Among those in which guests can compete are Scariest Costume, Most Creative, Best Pair or Group Costume, Funniest Costume and Best Overall. The top 15 costumes will win cash, with the first-place winner taking home a cash prize of $1,000.

General admission tickets to Wicked Ball are $50 and VIP tickets (which includes six drink tickets) are $90 and increase by $10 on the day of the event. Must be 21 or older to attend.
