Celebrate spooky season in Highlands this year at Halloween on Main!

Each October 31, three blocks of Main Street close for a scary-fun night of trick-or-treating for all ages. The excitement usually begins around 6 p.m. and continues for two hours as merchants on and near Main Street welcome and distribute candy to all. Halloween on Main is a safe, fun and free event for everyone to enjoy. All are welcome and encouraged to show up in their best costume, whether spooky or silly, cute or creepy. Even furry friends are welcome (just make sure to keep them on a leash).

Hot dogs, hot chocolate, popcorn and -- of course -- candy is plentiful. The treats are served by Highlands community organizations; donations are encouraged. Candy, drinks and food provided by the event organizers: Highlands Chamber of Commerce/Visit Highlands, NC. Live music, including two bands and a DJ, add to the lively scene so come ready to bust out your most monstrous moves!
