Fremont Street Experience will once again transform itself for the Sixth Annual OktoberFrightFest, combining Oktoberfest and Halloween for the ultimate street party, taking place October 5 – November 1 (Pictured: Frank & The Steins).
The spooktacular festivities will include free performances from the popular stage production show “Frank & The Steins,” “Vampire Rising” and “Halloween Hotties.” Viva Vision light and sound shows will also be themed to “Time Warp” and “Monster Mash.”
Frank & The Steins:
“Frank & The Steins” is a live musical revue of classic Halloween songs. The cast is comprised of hot ghouls and guys; singers, dancers and live musicians performing songs including “Psycho Killers,” “Spooky,” “Time Warp,” and “Ghostbusters” that will make audiences dance, laugh, sing and scream. “Frank & The Steins” is produced by Face Productions and choreographed by Melden Steele. Frank & The Steins will perform on the 1st Street Stage Oct. 5 – Nov. 1 from 8 p.m. – 11 p.m. (dark on Oct. 9, 16 and 23).
“Vampire Rising” will perform three themed sets that highlight a vast repertoire. The Gothic Set includes a set list on the heavy side of rock and will include songs from Rob Zombie’s “Dragula,” Alice in Chains’ “Man in the Box,” and Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid.” The Pop Horror set is hosted by the “Addams Family” and will feature some of the lighter side of the macabre with hits like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” and Oingo Boingo’s “Dead Man’s Party.” The third set, titled Rock From the Dead, will have the band costumed like some of our dearly departed rock stars and will regale the crowd with renditions that include Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London,” Guns & Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle” and Blue Oyster Cult’s “Don’t Fear the Reaper.” Vampire Rising will perform on the 3rd Street Stage Oct. 7 – Oct. 30 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 p.m. – Midnight and Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. (dark on Oct. 18)
