Welcome to the Avondale District’s FREE Halloween block party, ‘Peaches and Scream,’ on Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31st. With four blocks closed off for partying, DJs spinning tunes, football on the big screens, food and drink deals, and of course, COSTUME CONTESTS, you don’t want to miss it! (Did we mention the doggie costume contest? Yep. For reals.)
The fun starts at 5:00 PM on Friday, October 30th and 11:00 AM on Saturday, October 31st. The Avondale District has been hosting regular ‘Eat in the Streets’ events, which will be transforming to ‘Treat in the Streets’ during the sixteenth annual Peaches and Scream Halloween Party. This is a kid-friendly event until dark. The fun for adults (and dogs who like to party) carries on until 11:00.
