With Halloween a little over a week away, we're running out of time to do all the fun Halloween activities. Luckily, the City of Conway, or should I say Halloween, has a little bit of everything for folks to enjoy.
For the past few years, the City of Conway has gotten pretty festive around Halloween; they've hung pumpkins in the trees, held ghost walks, and had a great pumpkin patch at the Methodist church. However, this year they've decided to crank it up a notch.
During a press conference on September 23, Conway Mayor, Barbara Blain-Bellamy, signed a proclamation that marked the city's unofficial, temporary renaming from Conway, SC, to Halloween, SC. The unofficial name change is part of the city's efforts to boost tourism and economic development during the fall season.
In addition to the fall activities and events that have already been going on in the city for the past few years, they've added several new ones: a golf cart parade, a spooky boat tour, and even more fall décor. Check out the overview and links below for additional info on Halloween, SC, and the events going on from now until Halloween night.
Take a walk around the city of Conway, and you will find several different spots that'll get you into the Halloween spirit and are perfect for a spooky photo op.
- Pumpkins in the Trees on Main Street
- Cobb Web Arch and Witches Hats on the left side of City Hall
- Fall Hay Bales, Pumpkins, and Breast Cancer Ribbon on the right side of City Hall and the City Plaza on Laurel Street
- Pumpkin Pallet in front of the City Hall Annex
- Skeletons on the bench in front of Acorn Studio
- Pumpkin Arch at Kingston Park
First United Methodist Church on 5th Ave. has one of the best pumpkin patches around. Not only do they have a fantastic selection, but they restock their patch all season long!
The Conway Ghost Walk travels through the Historic Downtown to the Riverwalk with storytellers sharing tales that are always spooky, sometimes humorous, and guaranteed to become part of your family's Halloween tradition.
