TRANSYLVANIA’S 36th HALLOWEENFEST
October 27, 2018
Transylvania, Romania might be the origin of Count Dracula’s character, but Transylvania County and Brevard have the best celebration! (And it’s the closest Transylvania there is!)
We have a full day’s worth of family fun and light-hearted celebration planned for the spookiest day of the year! The Flight of the Vampire 5K, 10K, and Children’s Fun Run takes off in the morning from the American Legion Hall. Watch as vampires, zombies, and ghosts (disguised as runners) make their rounds around town.
Heart of Brevard’s street festival, featuring crafters, artists, games, and food, opens at 10:00am at Broad and Main Streets in downtown Brevard, and is sure to be fun for everyone in your family. Come to town in costume, too, and enter the Costume Contest and Parade. This is for all ages, with cash prizes and a parade through town after the judging!
Old Time Music has never looked so good as it does in Brevard! A full slate of groups all day at the courthouse Gazebo gives you just a small taste of what is available in Transylvania County. Make sure you bring a chair and your dancing shoes!
Where better to give up your blood than in Transylvania?!? This year we welcome again The Blood Connection to Halloweenfest – collecting blood for Transylvania Regional Hospital! You will also find Pumpkin Carving, Brevard Academy’s Pumpkin Plinko, and so many other things at Transylvania’s 35th annual Halloweenfest!
And we don’t leave out your four-legged family members, either. The city of Brevard has an ordinance restricting dogs at festivals, but they make an exception for the Pet Costume Parade. Starting at the stage on West Main Street, the animals in this parade strut their stuff all through town! It is a true treat to see the creativity of these creatures – and their owners!
Everyone is sure to find something to please on this Spooktacular Halloweenfest in Transylvania County!!
