Castle Rock Rec's Totally Awesome 80's Party

anniversary_party_header only
Join us as we go back to the decade of hairspray and misadventure while totally getting physical. We will have 80s-themed activities inside and outside the Rec Center that will remind you of a time before everyone owned a cell phone.


Thursday, Oct. 11
5:30-8 p.m.
Castle Rock Recreation Center
2301 Woodlands Blvd.

Costume contest

Dressing the part is encouraged, and prizes will be awarded for the best dressed. Are you a Madonna or a David Lee Roth?

The fun begins even before you set foot inside!

You won’t have to ask “Where’s the beef?,” because we'll be cooking up free hot dogs and serving them with chips and a drink! Additional food will be available for purchase from the Lante Bräu-Casa food truck.  

In the parking lot, enjoy '80s tunes while checking out "The A-Team" van and "The Ghostbusters" vehicle!

See the Rec Center like never before

  • Arcade games and pinball
