ELIZABETHTON — Evenings on Elk have proven to be a popular addition to the downtown activities along East Elk Avenue this year. With a special night for gathering downtown, shopping and enjoying everyone’s company, Evenings on Elk was a popular event every second Friday of the month during the warm weather season.

Now, Evenings on Elk will be holding its last event on Friday, and it will feature plenty of Halloween spirit and fun.

As always, attendees can enjoy live music while shopping and dining at downtown restaurants until 9 p.m. This townwide event consists of several separate events at once.

The Gathering Hub will feature a food truck rally in addition to kids activities and a special performance from the East Tennessee Ballet Company. Also, attendees can catch a glimpse of the new Art Space opening soon and a Harry Potter Party at Duck Crossing. Building 520 will host a Hocus Pocus Party with the Sanderson Sisters.

Located at the end of the second block, the Bonnie Kate Theater has a special evening planned beginning with a Smoky Mountain Ghostbusters meet and greet, followed by a paranormal investigation by Washington County Paranormal Investigations and a showing of the classic “Ghostbusters.” This is a free event; however, donations will be accepted for The Bonnie Kate Restoration Project.

Riverside Taphouse will host the official after party with an outdoor concert by Demon Waffle and John Paul USA’s Tokyo street food. Gypsy Cider Circus and Tailgate Brewery will do a tap takeover, complete with apple bobbing.

In conjunction with Evenings On Elk, the Elizabethton Arts and Culture Alliance will debut a project funded by a grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission to restore empty storefronts by showcasing local artists’ creations in the windows.
