What: Romania is quite a trek for vampire lovers, so why not bring Count Dracula’s castle closer to home? Join Transylvania County’s Halloweenfest in downtown Brevard for its 29th annual celebration of all things ghoulish. The festival goes beyond costume contests and a candy bonanza. The afternoon will feature pumpkin bowling, a scary hay maze and the Flight of the Vampire foot race. Show off your best zombie attire and pay tribute to Michael Jackson’s iconic song when a “Thriller” flash mob takes over downtown. If Halloween isn’t your thing, the festival will feature an Old Time Music Competition (no costume required).
When: Saturday, Oct. 29. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Where: Throughout downtown Brevard
