Peel the Pumpkin 2019 “Sci-Fi Swing By”

Friday November 1 @ 7:00 pm Sunday November 3 @ 1:00 pm

PTP 2019 Vertical Mascot

Peel the Pumpkin 2019 “Sci-Fi Swing By” returns to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Fort Lee, New Jersey for another fun-filled weekend. Just across the George Washington Bridge from Manhattan, the hotel’s proximity to the city is perfect for our local members and is excellent for out-of-town dancers. An inexpensive shuttle bus service to midtown is provided by the hotel so you can enjoy the attractions New York City has to offer without the stress and expenses of staying there.

Three full-time halls will provide non-stop dancing to Betsy Gotta, Bill Harrison and Tom Miller. Dance levels include Mainstream, Plus, Advanced and Challenge 1. What’s more, we’ve included a sumptuous buffet dinner on Saturday night before our legendary costume parade. Come prepared with your sci-fi inspired costume and join in the fun. As always there will be a pool tip late Saturday night.
