Tonight is the night where ghosts, goblins and ghouls make their appearance and put on a frightful show. In other words, it's Halloween! Halloween is not only an excuse for the kids to stock up on candy (and cavities), but it's also a chance for adults to join in on the fun!
Throughout the Greenville area, there are a variety of festive events taking place for all ages. For those that love a good haunted house or other hauntings, enjoy a frightful Trail of Terror on Haunted Hollow Road. Trail is open tonight, Thursday, October 31, from 7pm to 10pm. Admission is $8 with proceeds benefitting the Foxcroft Swim Team.
For those that might like to learn about the hidden spirits and visit the most haunted locations featured in Jason Profit's book "Haunted Greenville South Carolina," check out the Greenville Ghost Tour...The DARKside tonight at 8pm. Known for creating the Greenville Ghost Tour, Jason Profit has a lifetime of expertise in the paranormal. This special Halloween night version of the original Ghost Tour includes a few darker tales and ends at the largest cemetery in downtown Greenville where nearly 10,000 souls rest... but some not so peacefully on this night.
And as usual, the city is full of fun Halloween activities specifically for the kids. The Children's Museum of the Upstate (TCMU) will host its annual 'BOO-seum' event from 9am until 5pm today. Join the TCMU as the museum turns into a BOO-seum with silly alien antics, a spooky show, special Halloween themed art projects & more! Cost is free with museum admission.
For the little ones that love story time, be sure to stop by the Barnes & Noble at The Shops at Greenridge at 10am this morning for a fun trick-or-treat children's story time.
After story time, be sure to pop over to our retail boutique located in The Shops at Greenridge. The boutique is open from 10am-7pm.
Do you have any fun Halloween traditions you and your family do every year?
A special note to parents: It's important to keep our children safe as they trick-or-treat in neighborhoods around the city tonight on Halloween. Experts suggest decorating your kids' costumes and bags with reflective tape and have your children carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them be seen by drivers. Children without adult supervision should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and stick with trick-or-treat groups. For additional safety tips, click here.
