Jonesborough saw another spooky and successful Halloween Haunts & Happenings on Friday, Oct. 28.

“This is a great community event and we’re excited to welcome so many people to our downtown,” said

Nora Davis, marketing and promotions coordinator for the Town. “This is the first time we’ve had this event since 2019 and we’re thrilled to bring it back.”

Main Street was full of ghosts and ghouls – and a special guest appearance by the Sanderson Sisters from Salem, Massachusetts, who were conjuring up Hocus Pocus in front of the Christopher Taylor Cabin all night.

The costume contest brought out all kinds of char- acters including an astronaut, plague doctor and doll.

Winners from the costume contest were:

• 3 & under: Astronaut

• 4-6 years: Carmen Maranda

• 7-9 years: Wayne’s World

• 10-12 years: Plague Doctor

• 13-17 years: Weird Al

• Adult: Annabelle

• Group: Addams Family

Another fun fall event was the Jack-O-Lantern Drive-Thru. Pumpkins were lit and on display up and down Main Street from Oct. 27 to Oct. 31.

“We had an outstanding turnout of both young and old for the event. I’m so proud of the effort our staff, our volunteers and businesses put into this great family event,” said Jonesborough Mayor Chuck Vest. “I’m not sure I’ve seen this many people on Main Street. Next year we will certainly increase the amount of candy given out.”
