Halloween is a holiday that appeals to people of all ages. The youngest celebrants enjoy choosing a new costume and showing it off to their friends and family during parades, parties and Trick-or-Treating. Those who are young at heart still appreciate having the opportunity to pretend to be someone else for the day, and to have a great night out with their friends.
In Nashville, these are the best Halloween events for locals and visitors of all ages:
Spooktacular Halloween Party
Preschoolers in Murfreesboro have an opportunity to enjoy an earlier, alternative Halloween event. The Spooktacular Halloween Party will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on October 30 at Murfreesboro Patterson Park. Kids should come dressed in their costumes, as this event will include both a parade and a costume contest. Other activities include face painting, games and crafts, and light refreshments also will be available. This event is free, and is open to children between the ages of 3 and 5.
Halloween Movie Night: Phantom of the Opera
The Halloween Movie Night: Phantom of the Opera event perfectly combines every element of this holiday to create a frightfully fun evening out on the town. Presented by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, this event will include a screening of the 1925 silent movie Phantom of the Opera combined with the sounds of the Schermerhorn's Martin Foundation Concert Organ. The event takes place on at 7:30 p.m. on October 30 at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Attendees are encouraged to come in costume, as there will be a costume contest after the screening is complete.
Trick or Treat on the Square
Sometimes it can be difficult for those youngest trick-or-treaters to stay up or head out for candy after dark. With this in mind, the Trick or Treat on the Square provides preschool-aged children with an alternative trick-or-treating event. This event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on October 31 at Gallatin's Historic Downtown Square. It is a free event, and children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costume so that they can trick-or-treat to collect candy from the downtown storefronts and merchants.
Headquarters Halloween Party and Costume Contest
One of the greatest thrills about Halloween as an adult is that it gives an easy excuse for dressing up as someone or something that is different from reality. Those who are proud of their frightful or creative costumes need to head to the Headquarters Halloween Party and Costume Contest. This party will begin at 9 p.m. on October 31 at Headquarters Beercade. This event has earned a reputation for being the best costume contest in the city, as the first place winner will take home a $500 cash prize. There's no cover for this party.
Dia de Los Muertos at Saint Anejo
This cultural event provides Halloween revelers with an opportunity to experience Dia de Los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead. The Dia de Los Muertos party at Saint Anejo promises guests that they can dress up like they dead, yet still party like they are alive and well. Festive attire is encouraged, and there also will be drink and food specials all evening. The party goes on all day from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on October 31.
Whether parents are taking their kids out for a night of free candy or adults are gathering to celebrate Halloween in style, there's an event for everyone in the next couple days.
