The fourth annual MacLaren Speakeasy and Poker Tournament took place Thursday night at the MacLaren Art Centre.

Tickets were $125 per person with the funds going toward supporting programs and exhibitions at the centre, including the children and youth programs.

“People really got into the prohibition theme this year,” said Sue-Ellen Boyes, director of development and marketing at the centre.

Live jazz, speakeasy-inspired cocktails, poker, blackjack and prizes were all a part of the event.

Coming up, the MacLaren Art Centre is in the middle of planning its Halloween Coffee House event, which takes place Oct. 26.
