..."Believe it or not, Ruby Falls used to be a Chattanooga night hotspot," states Hu Longmire, marketing manager for Ruby Falls.
"Castle Dances, as they were called, were large weekly gatherings, but as Ruby Falls
became more prominent as an attraction, the Castle Dances faded away"
In a revival of this old tradition, Ruby Falls
has partnered with 95.3 Jack FM and the United Way of Greater Chattanooga
to host what they hope to be a yearly event.
"We would love to have more charity events like this at Ruby Falls
in the future, so we are very interested in how the Monsters Ball turns out," states Mr. Longmire
