HAUNTFEST celebrates Halloween & Community Oct. 29
The best and biggest Halloween party in the Miami Valley is returning for its 36th year on Saturday, Oct. 29 from 7pm to 1am on Fifth Street in the Oregon District.
“It’s definitely an experience,” said Andy Rowe, president of the Oregon District Business Association (ODBA) and manager of Blind Bob’s “It’s a chance for Daytonians to come together to celebrate and enjoy the spirit of our neighborhood.”
This year’s HAUNTFEST
will feature live music and DJ’s, food trucks, beer trucks, street performers, and a costume contest with cash prizes. Prizes will be awarded in categories: Best individual, Best Group, and Best theme.
Even if you don’t want to participate in the costume contest, everyone is encouraged to dress up. The people watching is reason enough to attend.
And, if you’re feeling the music, bring your dancing shoes. The intersection of 5th and Wayne transforms into a giant dance party thanks to two DJs. With another stage for live music at Pine and 5th there’s no shortage of opportunities to relax, dance—if you’d like—and experience a feeling of togetherness with 18,000 of your neighbors.
