The festival is a free community event and is open to everyone. Candy, games, inflatables, crafts, food vendors, and a family-friendly mini haunted experience will be included. Costumes are encouraged as well as masking for COVID mitigation.

Prizes will be donated by local businesses for certain events.

A pumpkin decorating/carving contest is also planned. Instructions for contest pre-registration will be posted on the Elizabethtown Parks & Recreation website.

Parking is expected to be limited on the day of the event.

In a recent Facebook post, the Parks & Recreation team announced that registration is still open for the following types of vendors:
