Bramfield Fonds

  • 1975-1977

Photographs from the Freakers' Ball. The photographs were taken at three different Freakers' Balls: in 1975, when it was held in the Mount Whistler Lodge; in 1976, when it was held in the Christiana Inn, and in 1977, when it was held in the Keg.

Inspired by a Doctor Hook song of the same name, the Freakers’ Ball was held in Whistler for four successive years during the full moon of spring solstice, beginning in 1974. At a time when Whistler’s entertainment was somewhat limited, the Freakers’ Ball filled the gap, bringing the entire valley together to celebrate. It was also a chance for the girls (and the boys) to dress up in something more glamorous than ski boots. The dress code was "formally insane and insanely formal", and people wore everything from evening dress to cavalier costumes to a gorilla suit. One partygoer even jumped out of a cake wearing nothing but body paint.
