Friday, July 14

Friday Night Stage Show and Run-Out

Enjoy an original, live stage show featuring our ghoul, Aurora Gorealis of Shocktail Hour; live music performed by Beach Creeper; the Shorty's Short Film and Mx. Blobfest Universe Contests; and a re-enactment of the famous 'run out' scene starring YOU!

Shorty’s Short Film Contest

Each year, inspired by the same muse that sang to Director Irvin “Shorty” Yeaworth when he conceived of The Blob, filmmakers of all ages compose entries for our Annual Shorty’s Short Film Contest. Winning films will be screened for the public all day Saturday, July 15 during Blobfest 2023. Prizes will be awarded to the winners on Friday night.

Mx. Blobfest Contest

Ms. Blobfest 2022 called and she’s not giving up her crown without a fight. So . . . best of luck? Only one can reign as Mx. Blobfest 2023!

Presented by Lulu Boutique & Gifterie Blob Ball

This after-party is hosted annually by our friends at LuLu Boutique & Gifterie inside the Colonial Theatre after the Run-Out has ended. Features live music and swing dancing.
