WICKED WEEKEND 2010 TO BE HELD October 28th -31st

September 29th, 2010
(Wilton Manors, FL) - Wilton Manors Main Street, Inc., in conjunction with an Events Council consisting of representatives from all nine of the bars along Wilton Drive, is delighted to announce an expanded series of Halloween events this year. Beginning Thursday, October 28th through Sunday, October 31st, the bars along Wilton Drive will be hosting various events each day under the unified nautical theme of “FantaSea Island.”

“We’re anticipating this year to be larger and better than ever,” said Doug Blevins, President of Wilton Manors Main Street, Inc.  “However, we also want to make the public aware of some changes, in particular that Wilton Drive will be open to traffic this year. We are working closely with the city and the bars on the drive to make certain that the events are both safe and successful.”

Anticipating the largest crowd on Saturday night, additional parking with on-site security will be provided at Fort Lauderdale High School, Equality Park, the city parking lot on Dixie Highway, the parking lot by City Hall and behind the Sun Trust Bank, with complimentary shuttle service to and from the drive.

More convenience facilities and security to assist the City of Wilton Manors will be provided, co-sponsored by Wilton Manors Main Street, Inc. and all participating bar members, Rosie’s Bar & Grill, New Moon, Matty’s on the Drive, The Manor, Bill’s, Alibi, Boom, Sidelines Sports Bar and Tropics.

Wilton Manors Main Street is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. For more information on Wilton Manors Main Street, visit or contact Doug Blevins.


  1. If you are still expecting large crowds on Saturday night, isn't it dangerous to keep the street open to traffic? It is not possible for that many people to walk on the sidewalks.

  2. Is this official? I heard Halloween at Manor's had been cancelled. I'd like to attend (first timer).

  3. Hi O,

    Wilton Manors will be having four nights of festivities at the businesses on Wilton Drive and in the bars. We expect that Saturday night will be the busiest night of the weekend.

    Since you have never come to Wilton Manors, you will want to know that Thursday Night is the beginning of the weekend here, and usually has a massive crowd on its own when there is nothing special going on - add a party to it and it goes to another level!

    The final plans are still being worked out for each night and as we get details, you can find them here.

  4. Not closing the streets? Seriously??? It's the biggest night of the year for WM and you're keeping the streets open to traffic? That's a party killer for sure!!!! Half the fun of the event is parading down the open street in costume, meeting friends, taking pictures. All that's going to happen on the sidewalks? Or in Alibi parking lot? I've just lost interest in attending.

  5. Thanks for your comments and concerns. There were a number of factors taken into consideration regarding closing the drive this year and it was determined that it simply wasn’t feasible. If you’d like that to change for next year, the best way to make sure it does is to come out at Halloween this year and have a great time! By supporting the folks that have put so much time, effort and financial support behind this event, you’ll help make it even better next year. If you want more of a voice in future events, we welcome you as a member of Wilton Manors Main Street. You can become a member via our website, and we are grateful for your support and are always in need of volunteers!
