The 2015 Monster Bash Poker Run will take place Oct. 16 and 17 on Arizona's Lake Havasu. Event organizer Lake Racer LLC and title sponsor Teague Custom Marine are staging the run to benefit the Lake Havasu Food Bank. The organizer describes the Monster Bash as a "little smaller and easier going than the Desert Storm event in April."

This year’s event is the eighth annual Monster Bash and costumes are encouraged. Enrollment is limited to boats 35 feet and shorter, but special invitations go out to larger boats that have supported past Lake Racer LLC events.

The poker run is themed for Halloween, and participants will be offered a holiday photo opportunity of each boat in front of the London Bridge in Lake Havasu City. The event kicks off with an open house on Thursday evening, followed by a lunch run on Friday. The poker run takes place Saturday, and the weekend wraps up with a costume party with awards at the Nautical Conference Center that night. For more information, go to lakeracerllc.com.
