The Town of Jonesborough is excited to expand its annual Halloween Haunts & Happenings this year.
Taking place on Saturday, Oct. 28, the event will start at 2 p.m. with games, activities, contests and trick-or-treating that will continue until 8 p.m. The Great Carved Pumpkin Contest, Spooky Pooch Palooza, Flashlight Haunted Egg Hunt and more are all being planned.
Lots of fun activities and games for all ages will also be ongoing with barnyard train rides, slime station, pumpkin tic-tac-toe, candy bingo and more. The popular Costume Contest will return at 6 p.m. in front of the Courthouse. Sponsored by Food City, the contest will have several age groups and a group category as well.
This year, parking will also be available at the Jonesborough Elementary School with a shuttle to the Jonesborough Visitors Center. Parking is $5 per car with free shuttle rides available all day. It is highly recommended that you utilize this option as parking will be very limited in the downtown area.
