Halloween events: Some are on, some cancel
by Anna Oakes
Halloween event organizers are announcing decisions today to hold events as scheduled or to cancel events due to the snowy weather.
The Boone Boo! will be held as scheduled, the DBDA said Wednesday. The event begins with crafts and activities at the Watauga County Public Library at 4 p.m.
Around 4:30 p.m., participants will parade in costume to the Jones House Community Center, which
has been converted into a haunted house. Appalachian State University's men’s basketball
team will be at the Jones House from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. to meet fans, hand out posters and sign
autographs. Afterward, everyone will hit the merchants of King Street for trick-or-treating fun. For more information, call the DBDA at (828) 262-4532, or visit http://www.downtownboonenc.com.
The Nth Gallery in downtown Boone will hold its annual HalloweeNth art exhibit and costume party beginning at 7:30 p.m.
The Haunted Horn Trail at Horn in the West in Boone has been canceled for the evening of Wednesday, Oct. 31, because of wet and slick conditions, according to the Southern Appalachian Historical Association's Virginia Roseman.
"They say it’s a little too dangerous out there in the trails," Roseman said.
A pumpkin carving contest scheduled for this evening at the Green Park Inn in Blowing Rock has also been canceled.
God's Big Story Fall Fellowship at Mount Vernon Baptist Church in Boone, originally scheduled for tonight, has been postponed until Friday, Nov. 2, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Food, airwalks and games will be available for kids of all ages. No scary costumes, please.
