Halloween is like Charleston’s national holiday. People have been partying since Monday, but things are about to escalate. To help you navigate the slew of spooky events and parties, CisternYard’s Halloween expert Mackenzie Hoisington has rounded up her personal picks for this pumpkin season.
Haunted Pub Crawl
Enjoy spirits, in every sense of the word. Departing from Tommy Condon’s Irish Pub at 7 p.m. every night until Oct. 31, a guide will lead you to four spots for some fun Charleston haunted history.
Films on the Field: Hocus Pocus
Channel your childhood at MUSC Health Stadium Friday at 7 p.m. A scary good deal of $5 will get you to see the movie as well as killer access to a full bar and food.
“Dracula, King of Vampires”
Get your culture on at Charleston’s oldest theater. It is a classic Halloween story that will show all weekend at 7:30 p.m.
Frothy Halloween Costume
If the thought of adults in costumes is not enough to pull you away from “Stranger Things,” how about adults in costumes plus beer and food trucks? Check it out at from 7:30-10:30 p.m. on Friday at The Frothy Beard Brewing Company.
90s Nightmare On Bay Street
Planners are really channeling their 90s themes this year, but don’t they know the middle school years were a lot scarier? Rock a throwback costume and come out to Bay Street Biergarten on Friday at 10 p.m. Regardless of what you dress as, wear comfortable shoes: they have a DJ.
Halloween Costume Party Fundraiser
Costumes and fundraising! What a combination. LG’s by the Creek on Saturday at 5 p.m. is the spot to celebrate and donate. Show up and help create funds for those dealing with homelessness.
Halloween in the BOO-rough
Elliotborough Park and Community Garden is hosting everything Downtown students love: parties and food, Saturday 5:30-8 p.m.
Mercantile and Mash gets it. Celebrate the spooky season (and heal your hangover) with them on Sunday with brunch deals from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Did I mention s’mores lattes?
We are going to be serious for a moment too, because we love you guys. Pick a designated driver, watch out for your friends and know your limits.
