Halloween at Third Thursday on 3rd: Freak the Street Edition
Designed to feed the soul and the senses, Third Thursday on 3rd has become a new staple in Downtown Las Vegas with the best of art, food, and fun. In celebration of the spookiest month of the year, we’re taking it up a notch with a unique rendition of Third Thursday on 3rd: Freak the Street.
While there might be countless Halloween celebrations taking place throughout the city, here are five reasons you need to make Freak the Street your priority:
1. Cold Hard Cash
We know you worked hard putting together your costume, so we want to reward you for doing so. The best overall costume will take home $1,000 in cash! Second place will receive $300 cash, and third place will get $200 cash. Prizes will also be awarded for the Best Group, Funniest, and Most Unique costumes, so there are a few chances for you to walk away with extra money in your pocket.
2. Haunted Food Truck Experience
The event starts at 6 p.m. Guess what time that is? Dinner time. You’ll be fed just right with food truck options including El Shuko Original, Slidin’ Thru, Ben’s BBQ, Waffle Love, The Cookie Bar, and I Luv Cotton Candy.
3. Ghoulish Street Art
Who doesn’t appreciate beautiful art? Four artists will be battling throughout the night, each creating their own masterpieces. You will get to watch the creative process and even have an opportunity to take the paintings home.
Raffle tickets for the artwork can be purchased with 100 percent of the proceeds going toward the Las Vegas Victims’ Fund. You’ll also get a chance to win custom #VegasStrong t-shirts.
4. Prizes, Candy, Pumpkins, oh my!
Bring the whole family down! Have your kids come dressed in costume because we’ll be giving out prizes to some of the raddest costumes we see. Your kiddos will also be able to participate in their own art battle, but instead of canvases, they will get to use pumpkins! Perhaps the most enjoyable part for your kids is that they will be able to “Truck or Treat” to satisfy their (and your) sweet tooth.
5. Kickoff Halloween Early
Start your Halloween celebrations early with Third Thursday on 3rd: Freak the Street edition. It gives you an extra week to enjoy all the fun that is Halloween including the tastiest food, cheap drinks, good tunes, great people, and just an overall freaky night.
