Spooktacular festival on South Carolina’s Riverfront
Posted 10/25/2013 5:51:00 PM
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I hate spiders, but I love all the other fake spooky stuff that people do. I have a neighbor who has turned his whole front yard into a cemetery. One friend created a creepy circle of children ghosts from something she saw on an online craft site (I think you know the one I mean).
We are fairly calm in my house, just some standard witches, brooms, pumpkins and, of course, the candy.
Mix together all that great stuff about Halloween, add in South Carolina’s signature pulled pork barbecue, baked apples, pumpkin carving and, on yeah, cornhole and you have got the Jack-O-Lantern Jubilee
in North Augusta
, known as South Carolina’s Riverfront
There will be games and rides and a costume contest for the kids, and for the bigger kids, a barbecue cook-off, apple-baking contests and live music.
You also can drop off your best carved pumpkin (or other “structure” that is no bigger than 2-feet square) for judging in the pumpkin carving contest because, after all, the pumpkin is the star of this festival.
Things kick off at 10 a.m. on Georgia Avenue.
The top carvers will be announced around noon and barbecue pork, chicken and ribs will be available for tasting all day. The festivities continue into the evening with a raft of live music performers.
