TPA’s Naughty & Nice Holiday Bash at Don’s Brings 2016 Mixers to a Festive Close

Earlier this month, Theme Park Adventure held its Naughty & Nice Holiday Bash at Don the Beachcomber in Huntington Beach. With more than 100 TPAers from near and far in attendance, the Christmas mixer was an evening to remember! Fans gathered at the famous tiki restaurant and bar on Pacific Coast Highway for several hours of socializing, cocktail libations, and outrageous nerdy fun as together, we embraced the Holiday Season and said goodbye to 2016 collectively.

While all guests at our mixers are considered special, this month’s gathering had an extra-awesome VIP in attendance – the Krampus! Thanks to our friend Bill Rude, who made a fantastic appearance as the ancient Christmas demon. Bill is the owner/artist behind 7 Hells: The Retro Horror Art of Bill Rude, and a friend of both TPA and Midsummer Scream, and an asset to the horror and haunt community in general. To the delight of TPAers, Krampus hung out for quite a while, taking photos with all of the naughty little boys and girls – and as far as we know… all TPAers from that night are accounted for! He even brought a sack full of 7 Hells gifts for our raffle. A huge thanks to Bill for hanging out and dressing up!

TPA’s Christmas Bash at Don’s a Great Night!

Christmas_Bash_2014_9953TPAers from all over Southern California gathered on Sunday night, December 7th at Don the Beachcomber in Huntington Beach for Theme Park Adventure’s 2014 Christmas Bash! And what a night it was! With over 100 fans, haunters and industry peeps in the house, it was a ton of tiki madness that was definitely one of the season’s greatest parties!

December marked the second month now in our new home for mixers, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with Don the Beachcomber and the wonderful staff there; they treat our group so well, and are incredibly accommodating, always wanting to make sure everyone is happy and content with their visit. A huge shout-out to our friends at Don’s, along with the boss man that welcomed TPA with open arms, Emerson Duque; what a fantastic way to end the year!
