Look no further than the streets of downtown Highlands, N.C. when it comes to celebrating Halloween in grand fashion, albeit a bit spooky and fun all rolled into one evening! So on Oct. 31, 2014 as the clock strikes dusk around 6 p.m., the streets of Highlands will fill with ghosts and goblins and a few other characters to make their way through the streets as they look for tricks-or-treats.
Fun Filled Festivities!
The Highlands All Hallows Eve Celebration is an annual event sponsored for more than two decades by the Highlands Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center. It’s a big event in the community drawing everyone big and small to take part in the festivities. The streets are blocked off in the downtown area for everyone to roam and fill their bags with treats from local businesses.
Of course there will be costume contests and other activities taking place on the terrace of the Town Square, at both Main and Fourth streets, like live music and a host of local organizations will feature other goodies to enjoy all night.
A Haunted Mansion
Halloween would not be complete without a haunted mansion to spark a little fright in the night. The Park On Main Hotel®, for one night only, will turn into a spooky mansion of sorts to get in on all the fun. Here’s your invitation to the party!
Our lobby will be transformed into an old elegant mansion with a few details to delight our visitors who enjoy a few fun tricks. Lurking around the hotel lobby during the evening will be various creepy characters who by day serve as our trusted and welcoming staff. They will distribute a few goodies or they may have a few tricks in store.
Hotel guests will be treated to special concoctions like hot spiced apple cider and other ghoulish treats. And our pet guests will also have their own special treats to enjoy.
Mr. Pickles, our hotel mascot, will be here dressed as Dracula to help judge the Best Dog Costume contest! A big “thank you” to all of Mr. Pickles’ followers on Twitter, and others through the hotel, who all voted to help select his costume.
The dog costume contest should be tons of fun to determine a winner who will get a basket full of doggie treats and toys! And the owner of the winner receives a prize too – a gift certificate for a free stay at the hotel!
