Join Us Tomorrow as We Launch HallowEast!

Curious about what exactly HallowEast is all about? Wondering who our featured guest will be?

Join East End Main Street and Charleston Mayor Danny Jones tomorrow - Tuesday, Sept. 29 - at 1 p.m. when we announce the details of the four-day celebration. We’ll be at Kanawha Players, 309 Beauregard Street.

East End Main Street program director Ric Cavender, EEMS volunteers and other dignitaries will be announcing HallowEast details and the schedule. The seasonal celebration, featuring arts, entertainment and cultural events, is scheduled to run from Oct. 28 to Oct. 31.

The highlight of HallowEast – a fundraiser for EEMS – is an Oct. 30 Kanawha Players performance of “Dial M for Murder,” but the evening also will showcase a rising Hollywood celebrity for a hit television drama whose identity will be revealed during the Sept. 29 launch.

“This is HallowEast’s first year, but it’s already a giant undertaking,” Cavender said. “We’re eager to officially unveil our plans, which include an enhanced trick or treat night, a murder mystery, an art show and more. But we especially are thrilled and honored to have a very special guest to highlight HallowEast, and a lot of fans are going to be excited, too.”

Everyone is welcome to attend the Sept. 29 event. EEMS will be giving away and selling HallowEast paraphernalia.

“This is an event people can really sink their teeth into,” Cavender said. “It’s a way for Charleston to embrace the enthusiasm surrounding the holiday, and we want this to be another way for residents to come together in celebration. October is going to go out with a fang.”
