The Lightkeeper's Ball
Welcome to The Lightkeeper's Ball: A Time Traveler's Yuletide Celebration! It's our mission to create an annual gala to celebrate the creativity and ingenuity of our Steampunk and alternate history community.
The ball will be held in the Grand Ballroom at the DoubleTree by Hilton Seattle Airport on Saturday, December 13, 2014 from 8:00pm-2:00am.
This is an all-ages event from 8:00pm-11:00pm. After 11:00pm, the Grand Ballroom will be open to adults only. Our younger guests will be invited to join us in the "parlour" for gaming and conversation.
A few highlights of the ball include-
Our main stage will feature The Nathaniel Johnstone Band from 8:30pm-10:00pm with DJ Jammin Panda spinning the remainder of the night away. A bevy of beautiful, burlesque performers will be joining us post 11:00pm.
Not quite finished with your holiday shopping? Or perhaps want to indulge in a beautiful bauble for yourself? Join some of the most creative artisans in Seattle for an unforgettable evening!
Every admission comes with at least one raffle ticket (see ticketing levels for details). All prizes will be displayed inside the Grand Ballroom for your viewing pleasure. Once you decide which delectable prize is for you, place one half of your raffle ticket in the accompanying vessel and keep the other for yourself. All prizes will be distributed after the Costume Contest at approximately 10:30pm. You must be present to win. Additional tickets can also be purchased on site.
At the stroke of ten, we'll have everyone interested in our mini masquerade join us on stage. All participants must register for the contest by 9:00pm. Prizes will be awarded in multiple categories.
