Residents’ Celebration

Wind your way down North Main Street in Mocksville from 5:30-9 p.m. for more fiendish fun. Many homes will be dressed for Halloween as cemeteries, ghosts and goblins, witches brew, and more line their paths. Expect bands, DJs, special events, and of course, candy along the way.

“We are excited to celebrate Halloween on Main Street again this year,” said Chuck Taylor, who is organizing the residential effort. “This celebration has become an annual tradition and a wonderful experience for kids. Last year, we estimated that over 5,000 people came downtown and enjoyed the experience.There were so many people that many residents ran out of candy.”

Taylor is grateful to Mocksville Tourism Development Authority (MTDA) and Davie County Tourism for providing a grant to support this year’s event.

“If you want to come downtown, we welcome you. Please park your vehicle downtown or in the parking lots on side streets. Once the roads are closed, no one (even local residents) will be able to gain access. Our primary focus is to provide a safe place for kids and their families to enjoy Halloween.”

North Main Street will be closed from Gaither Street to Martin Luther King Jr. Road from 6-10 p.m. There will be no access to North Main from side streets.

Jason Michael Carroll will play a concert beginning at 6 p.m. from one of the residences. Bring a chair for seating.
