The Addams Family Water Ski Show

This month is so full of Addams Family events that it's difficult to keep up with them all. As always, if anyone managed to attend, they are welcome to send photos/stories of the occasion in to be posted here.

Addams event


"The Addams Family Water Ski Show: They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky. They're the Tampa Bay Water Ski Show Team, a talented bunch of water skiers who build pyramids and perform tricks at 40 mph.

On Saturday at 7:30 p.m., they'll be presenting their rendition of the 1960s television show, The Addams Family. The plot revolves around a sance by Addams family and friends to call back Uncle Fester, who disappeared during Hurricane Ester. The guest list includes vampires, black cats, Captain Jack Sparrow and the Witches of Eastwick.

The free show takes place at Tower Lake near the Oldsmar Flea Market. From Tampa Road, take Racetrack Road north to Douglas. Turn left. The ski site entrance is at the second dirt drive on the left. For information call Lisa Schmidt at (727) 480-9365 or Vickie Wilmouth at (813) 265-9685 or visit tampawaterski.com"

Waterford, Ireland: Addams Family Reunion Party

"Neat, sweet and petite they ’aint... Traffik DJs Lurch (Louis), Morticia (Zoe) and Gomez (Tommy) are about to be visited by all their long-lost eccentric, bizarre and just plain grotesque relatives...that means you, weirdo!"

"There’s great prizes on the night for the most inventive and original characters and costumes so if you always fancied yourself as a member of the McAddams Family, Gomez’s Hillbilly cousins, now’s your chance. Maybe you model yourself on Dear old Uncle Lobotomy, who holds the record for balancing the most place settings on one’s person, or even Aunt Hill (we have no desire to comment on her, lest we get infested). Rising to the grisly occasion, the Forum staff will decorate the venue in a cobweb-infested style Mama would relish.

So get a witches shawl on, a broomstick you can crawl on, go and pay a call on the Addams Family Reunion at Traffik this Saturday night. Doors open at 11.30pm and admission is •10."

mensflair: "[Gomez is the]character to impersonate for the man of style"

mensflair.com recommends that the well-dressed man consider going as Gomez Addams this Halloween.

"A contemporary character to impersonate for the man of style might be Gomez Addams from the Addams Family. The dapper gentleman from the comedy series was frequently seen wearing a cravat, a velvet smoking jacket, or perhaps a natty striped suit, and had his dark hair slicked back. There was a feint air of the Count about him, but he was less of an animal than Dracula, and due to the comedic milieu of the Addams family, is probably easier to impersonate with a sardonic smile."
