I went to the Sevier County Sheriff’s Office Spooktacular Block Party last year and had a great time so I had not planned to go again this year. It was huge! However, when my schedule opened up at the last minute, I had to go and see it again. I arrived soon after the start time at 5:00 and was so glad that I did because I saw a lot of good things. This is part one of a blog story: the downtown gazebo and Bruce Street areas. I’ll publish part 2 tomorrow.
Evergreen Church provided the ‘trunk or treat area area the gazebo last year and I think that they were back this year. The church members are so wonderful that it makes me want to go attend services there some time—even though I have a ‘home church.’
Loved this theme—and the little helper.
Beauty and the Beast!
This was an incredible set to give away candy.
This set is from the movie “Up.”
Ready to take flight!
We finally found Waldo.
I found some old friends that I had not seen in years. So good to see them!
It was 73 degrees on Bruce Street so the weather could not have been better!
The Venue had a private event going on, but still participated with candy. I went in to take a look.
I was scared to go much further.
I heard a good sound system so you should consider this site downtown for events.
This was a good way to get around the Spooktacular.
The Sevierville Commons Arts Council was holding a ‘Make it and Take it’ on Bruce Street.
People gathered round to make felt ‘monster’ finger puppets. So cute!
A felt monster finger puppet with a bat. Love it!
More candy near the gazebo from a nice family in seasonal colors.
This family was perfectly co-ordinated. Loved their costumes!
I would have walked past this sidewalk painting on Bruce Street if the artist had not been nearby and explained that it is a 3D mural. It was amazing! Look at the rope painted across the center.
You stand on the rope and photograph it. It appears to be a pit, but the surface is flat. This was the best thing that I saw this evening. Fabulous and fun!
Here is the website to find this Newport based artist. https://www.easttnartscapes.org
Perfect weather and families out enjoying a safe Halloween event on Bruce Street. And that is just the half of it. Tomorrow, we’ll go on Court Avenue and take a stroll around the courthouse. It was a nice evening out and about in Sevierville…
