Feeling Spooky in the Mountains: Halloween in Asheville, Part I

Halloween in Asheville, Part I
Oh, it's finally that spooky time of year when we get to dress up and celebrate being weird! Asheville is a wonderful place to celebrate the holiday for so many reasons, not the least of which is.. we love a costume party! Read on for some suggestions on how to spend this Halloween in Asheville!
The Mothlight Halloween Party
The Mothlight is one of our favorite West Asheville spots for after dark fun! Every year, the Mothlight hosts a super fun evening of costume and dance. Several amazing bands provide the tunes, and the guests dance long into the night. We definitely recommend swinging by!

Trick or Treating on Vermont Ave
West Asheville is the place to be if you're a kid looking for candy on Halloween Night. Every year, the entire breadth of Vermont Ave shuts down to make way for the hundreds of visiting and local families dressed in their best costumes. This is like the most exciting themed block party you've ever attended, so if you're planning on being in the holiday, bring the kiddos down to West Asheville for a hill of a time!
A Seance at Lex 18
Lex 18, situated in the heart of Downtown Asheville, knows how to throw a great party! This event will be as spooky as it is classy, and we wouldn't want to miss it for the world. Beginning at 9:00 PM, patrons will sit at a round table for a Victorian Seance. This fully immersive event will have all the key elements for a truly ethereal experience - the dim lighting, the live piano music, the to-the-nines costumes. Indeed, if you're looking for a new experience, try this one on for size!
