Final-ly Friday “Haunts & Hops” Kicks Off The Weekend With Ghost Stories on the Avenue, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and More

MT. AIRY – October 23, 2012– The Business Association of Mt. Airy (BAM), an initiative of Mt. Airy USA, celebrates another Finally Friday in Mt. Airy on Friday, October 26th with the theme “Haunts & Hops,” a celebration of Halloween and OctoberFest. On the last Friday of every month, residents and visitors alike can come to Mt. Airy’s commercial hubs to enjoy a festive yet laid back evening out with guest craft vendors, special entertainment features and great specials at local restaurants and shops.

To celebrate Halloween and OctoberFest, businesses and institutions will keep their doors open late to offer beer specials and candy for Trick-or-Treaters in costume. The Little Theater at Video Library will screen “It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown,” for kids at 7:30 pm and “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” at 9:30 pm (the cult classic’s Mt. Airy big screen debut).

On the heels of their last “Ghosts of the Great Road” tour, Historic Germantown is sponsoring “Ghost Story-Telling on the Avenue,” during which a spooky costumed re-enactor will tell the strange and unexplained tales that took place (and still take place) along The Great Road, Germantown Avenue.

Special guest vendors will be on hand selling handmade jewelry, accessories, organic body products, ceramics and other home décor.  

And there’s tons to do for kids! In addition to Trick or Treating and “…the Great Pumpkin”, there will be a free children’s craft station, sponsored by Green Mountain Energy, a face-painting vendor, and even $5 Halloween hair accents at Ground Zero Salon.
