The Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum is hosting its first pop-up party on Friday night in Amarillo.

Back in March, the museum took to the public, asking the community what their favorite decade was, which would then be decided as the theme of the pop-up party.

The community voted and decided on the 1980s!

On Friday night at the Derrick Event Center in Amarillo, located at 814 South Taylor Street, attendees will be able to come dressed in their favorite 80s themed outfit and celebrate with food, drinks, throwback music and a costume contest. The top three outfits will receive a variety of 80s themed prizes.

Activities will include:

  • DJ Katie of Neon Pink Media
  • Popsicles from Purple Flamingo food truck
  • Bites from Joe’s Catering
  • Take Your Pic Amarillo photo booth

The pop-up party goes along with the PPHM's Pop Culture exhibitions currently on display at the museum. According to Stephanie Price, Communications and Marketing Director at PPHM, the pop-up party is a way for the community to see that history is still present in our daily lives.

"It's really important that we understand history was yesterday, [that] history wasn't just a long time ago," Price said. "That we're making history today and so that's why we wanted to do pop culture. [It] is just a way for us to talk about things that just recently happened or hear from the people that lived it, so I think it's just gonna be a great way to have some fun, living in this pop-culture environment."

Tickets can be purchased online for $20 up until noon on Friday. After this time, tickets can be purchased at the door on Friday night for $40. The pop-up party will be held from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. and all proceeds will go to the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum.
