CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Glitter, fake blood and five-inch heels are a few of the things you can expect to see at UNI Proud's third annual Halloween Drag-A-Ganza from 7 to 10 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 29, in the Maucker Union Ballroom C on the University of Northern Iowa campus. The drag show and dance party aims to be the group's largest-ever Halloween show, with two sets of performances, a costume contest and an open dance floor.

"The Halloween Drag-A-Ganza is one of our biggest events of the fall semester," said David Pope, president of UNI Proud. "We've seen attendance go from 70 the first year to over a hundred last year. This year we've added about twice as many drag performers and they'll be sure to entertain longer than in the past."

Attendees are encouraged to tip performers; money raised will be donated to the Community AIDS Assistance Project. Prizes will be awarded for the scariest, funniest, most creative, most realistic and best gender-bending costumes.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Pope at 641-529-0381 or, or visit
