Welcome Reception
Those who enjoy engaging spirits of the distilled variety will get a thrill out of this year’s Spookeasy Halloween party – a bewitching evening of spine-tingling cocktails, ghostly encounters and an eye-popping costume contest. Held in the Gaylord Palms’ St. Augustine atrium, which features a replica of the famously haunted Castillo de San Marcos fort. “Did you hear that?” will be the question of the night as you make your way around each eerie corner. Pack your most awe-striking costume for a chance to claim first prize!
