About The Ball
The Channel House
At The Ball
The ball is held once a year and folks from all over LA and Orange County come to dance in the attire of the day! We go over around noon on the Catalina Flyer bringing our dance cloths in a carry-on. We eat at the Channel House Restaurant which is a great place to see everybody.
The Santa Catalina Island Company, under the direction of William Wrigley Jr. and David M. Renton, built the Casino building in 1928 and 1929. Mr. Wrigley had built a smaller version of the building, called Sugarloaf Casino, in the same spot eight years earlier to serve as an entertainment and gathering place for the Island’s visitors but soon realized that the building was too small to accommodate the growing visitation to the Island.
The Catalina Casino (Ballroom) is absolutely beautiful. Read about the ballroom .
