Monday, Oct. 31 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. is the annual Halloween Stroll in downtown Tryon. Trade Street merchants will decorate their shops to welcome all the creepies and cuties with treats.
Grace Church will turn its space into a winding, twisting Halloween maze and there may be some entertaining skeletons parading around downtown.
A decorated “Spookmobile” (a.k.a. Polk County Bookmobile) will be on hand with books and treats.
All beauties and beasties will assemble at 6 p.m. in the Tryon Movie Theater for the costume contest.
Tryon’s emcee, Andy Millard, will do the honors as characters compete in three age groups:
• Infant through 4 years old
• 5 – 8 years old
• 9 – 12 years old
Judges will award prizes to the spookiest, the funniest and the judge’s choice.
This year, for the first time, one prize will also be awarded for best in show, for themed groups and for grown-ups.
