On Saturday October 26, the Franklin Street Events Association will be presenting a Halloween Zombie Pub Craw, Witches Walk 5K, and Franklin Street Trick or Treat extravaganza all day long.

The event starts with the Witches Walk/Run 5K where participants are encouraged to arrive in costume that morning at 9 am on Franklin Street. Pre-Registration is $15 and on the day of the run, it’s $25. Children 15 and under can participate for FREE, and all participants will receive a t-shirt.

At 11 am, there will be a Lil’ Monster Bash at the Franklin Street Park with children’s activities including pumpkin painting, face painting, spooky story telling, a bounce house…even Zorb balls and much more! The Lil’ Monster Bash will be going on until 6pm.

Now, it’s time for the adults to have fun, because when 6 pm strikes, the Zombie Pub Crawl hits the streets in fine style. For $10, you will have access to a shuttle during the crawl, a cab ride home at the end of the night, and even a t-shirt! It doesn’t get much better than that! Just remember that your $10 will get you an armband that provides you access to your shuttle and cab, so don’t lose it!

Also, at 8pm you can check out hundreds of jack-o-lanterns lit up along the Franklin Street West Library Park for the Community Pumpkin Carving Contest. You can carve your own pumpkin at home, and bring it with you to Franklin Street Park from 11-6 and register to win CASH prizes! Nice, huh? So carve it up, dude!!
