Its that time of the year when we get ready for the ghouls and goblins of fall, despite the fact that fall in Las Vegas does not really start until sometime in late November. But with all the fall festivals in full swing and the city gearing up for Halloween the Goldwell Open Air Museum in the ghost town of Rhyolite is having a Luau.

If you have never been to Goldwell you are missing out one of the most important artistic treasures in Nevada. Located near the entrance to Death Valley National Park, the outdoor sculpture park, museum and art space has been around for over 25 years and over the last several years they been throwing a party to celebrate their founder Belgian artist Albert Szukalski. This year the museum has teamed up with Hawaiian Superstar Gary Haleamau and the Killians Angels to throw what will undoubtedly be a memorable party.

Albert's Tarantella Death Valley Luau will be held Saturday, October 1st. The Goldwell Open Air Museum is located in the ghost town of Rhyolite just west of the town of Beatty.
