Eastern Market will be hosting not one, but two Halloween events next Friday.
From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Halloween (Oct. 31), the annual Hilloween event will take place at Eastern Market.
The family-friendly community tradition features a haunted house, a hayride, a moon bounce and “some big cool trucks courtesy of DPW and BID.” There will also be temporary tattoos, a photo booth, a “pooch parade,” musical performances and trick or treating at local merchants.
New this year to Hilloween will be a pumpkin pie and apple pie baking contest. If you want to compete for the title of tastiest pie on the hill, an entry sheet is due on Sunday.
The costume ball will feature music, dancing, food and drink, a silent and live auction and “other excuses to raise money” for the scrappy troupe.
Tickets for the costume ball are $75, but are not currently on sale online.
