PWL: Mon­ster Bash Bat­tle Royal

The Hal­loween events are not just on Hal­loween night, as Jim Pow­ell’s Pro Wrestling LaFayette hosts the first-ever Mon­ster Bash Bat­tle Royal on Satur­day, Oct. 28, at the LaFayette Re­cre­ation Cen­ter.

A kids cos­tume con­test for chil­dren 12 and un­der will also make for an ex­cit­ing night in the Hal­loween spirit.

PWL will bring out the mon­sters of wrestling with the de­but of Leather Face and Zom­bie Dragon, and the de­ranged mon­ster known as Sunny Daze will re­turn for the Mon­ster Bash Bat­tle Royal.

Lo­cal wrestling stars like LaFayette’s Own Adam Ja­cobs, and La­mar Phillips and “Butcher” Bobby Hayes — of the tag team Walker County Line — will de­fend the town from out­siders like Ring­gold’s own “Na­ture Boy” Paul Lee and Phil Heffner’s Bounty Hunters.

It will be a night of hol­i­day hor­ror and pro­fes­sional wrestling ac­tion in LaFayette.

Tick­ets are $10 and are avail­able at the Real Deal Home Store in LaFayette 706-639-3310, or at the door.

“I look for­ward to bring­ing the first ever Mon­ster Bash Bat­tle Royal to my home­town,” Pow­ell said. “It’s go­ing to be an ex­cit­ing night.”

Scare on the Square

The city of LaFayette hosts one of the long­est-run­ning lo­cal Hal­loween events with its Scare on the Square on Tues­day, Oct. 31, from 5:30 - 7 p.m. when lo­cal busi­nesses hand out candy to all lit­tle trick-or-treaters.

Ac­cord­ing to the city of LaFayette Face­book page, Scare on the Square was a tra­di­tion started by lo­cal busi­ness­man, Joe Stock over 30 years ago.

“Scare on the Square is spon­sored by The Bank of LaFayette, and the City of LaFayette Main Street/ Down­town De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity board. Lo­cal busi­ness own­ers come out on Hal­loween and give out candy to all the chil­dren of com­mu­nity. This is a safe al­ter­na­tive to go­ing door to door, as all the candy you need & all your friends will be at Scare on the Square.”

Any­one with ques­tions about Scare on the Square can con­tact the LaFayette Main Street/DDA at 706-639-1519.

The Real Deal Home Store will also have the Trunk or Treat in its park­ing lot to co­in­cide with Scare on the Square.

Tra­di­tional trick-or-treat­ing will also take place on Hal­loween night and many area churches will have spe­cial Hal­loween events to keep young­sters happy. Check our Com­mu­nity Cal­en­dar for more in­for­ma­tion.
