Not surprisingly, Transylvania County celebrates Halloween in a big way. The day begins with the Vampire Run with most participants in costume. And all day long there are vendors, games, contests, activities and music in downtown Brevard. We especially enjoy watching the children, most of them in costume.
This guy was moving so fast I didn't catch his full photo but I thought it was a great costume.
Only the bravest would enter the toy store (O.P. Taylor's) underneath this giant spider.
One of many Batman costumes. He was obviously delighted to pose.
John Deere tractors for tots. This little guy didn't even ask anyone to hold his binky.
Hunger Games quests abounded. (Much of the action was filmed in our county.) This was an archery target as the children tried the Hunger Games survival tactics.
The Great Pumpkin Roll began at the top of Jailhouse Hill.
(Wouldn't they roll better if the stems were removed?)
Despite the many children's activities, this little toddler was content to play with one of the cones.
I couldn't help but wonder how one distinguishes the relevant truths from the non-relevant ones.
I should have attended the services to find out.
I love going to these small-town festivities. The folks are always so friendly. It's nice to live a town where several blocks in the center of town are closed to traffic so the people can party.
Our thoughts go out to those affected by the monster storm that is hitting our eastern coastal areas as well as affecting even more of our country. Our weather here has turned winter-like overnight with high winds removing the last of the autumn leaves. Our dogs love it and we don't mind.
Stay safe, everyone.
