Saturday, Oct. 27
If you're looking for something a bit out of the ordinary this Halloween season, why not take a trip to Meymandi Concert Hall? The North Carolina Symphony will be performing The Halloween Spooktacular in a concert specifically tailored for younger audiences. The performance features more than music from well-known series (Harry Potter, anyone?) – there will be ghost stories as well.Check out our previous blogpost for more information.
Raleigh will be hosting its first ever Raleigh Living Dead Festival, with live music, circus performances, a kid's zone and an intriguing event called the "Zombie Olympic obstacle course." The festival will be held in City Plaza, but you can stagger down Fayetteville Street with other zombies in the Raleigh Zombie Walk, departing from Moore Square.
Wednesday, Oct. 31
As always, the people of Chapel Hill and nearby areas will be celebrating Halloween on Franklin Street. If you can find a way to get there and don't mind crowds, you'll definitely have a great time and see some die-hard Halloween fans.
