Our town is big on celebrations, and its citizens love getting into the spirit (pun intended) of Halloween. White Street is the official trick-or-treating zone, but homes all over town are decorated with witches, pumpkins, spiders, etc. And the beautiful fall foliage acts as the perfect backdrop. This time of year, Eureka Springs feels and looks like the image we all have in our heads of small town America!
Here are some photos of decorated porches:
The Halloween show at Intrigue Theater has been a sell out for the last 3 years, so the 2015 show will be in the Auditorium downtown. Two new segments have been in the development for 15 months. Tickets and more information
The seventh annual “Voices from Eureka’s Silent City” – a fundraiser for the Eureka Springs Historical Museum – features living history tours at the city cemetery. Actors and guides present compelling stories of some of Eureka’s former leaders in service and philanthropy who now reside in the “Silent City.” Tickets and More Information
Tour both Haunted and Historic Hotels: the Crescent Hotel with its notorious cancer hospital history and basement morgue; and the Basin Park Hotel with spirits who made quite a profit selling liquid spirits.
If you survive Halloween night – or even if you don’t – enjoy the Zombie Crawl and Day of the Dead Parade, downtown on Sunday, November 1st.
Finally, even though there have been no confirmed ghost sightings, we think the Tall Pines Inn with its sixty-eight-year history is the perfect lodging choice for Halloween weekend! Boo!
