14 Oct “Spooktacular” Events in Meredith!
October is the month of all things hallowed and mysterious. In celebration of the mischief and fun that also come with the season, there are some fabulous and spooky happenings around town. The Greater Meredith Program now brings you a “Spooktacular Series of Events” occurring throughout October…
Treasure Chest prizes, Haunted Hikes, watching the Great Pumpkin Drop, and a chilling ghost story are just a few of the events to be found in the October “Spooktacular” events guide and game card, compiled by the Greater Meredith Program. The Spooktacular Guide, listing all the local events along with a scarecrow contest, can be picked up at many participating local businesses, including Ancient Willow Herbal Body Care, Annalee Dolls, Artisans By The Bay, Ben& Jerry’s, Cackleberries Garden & Gift Shop, Church Landing, 48 Main Street Merchants, Hermit Woods Winery, Lake Effect, Lovering Volvo, Meredith Bay Colony Club, Meredith Bay Furniture Co., Meredith Historical Society, Meredith Public Library, MVSB Rt. 104, Moulton Farm, Thrift and Gift, Tuckernuck Inn B&B, Verani Realty, and the Winnipesaukee Playhouse. Each of these businesses is offering one or more special events to celebrate the big collaboration. The Spooktacular Series of Events guide will also be available at the Chamber of Commerce and the Meredith Community Center, as well as a printable version on the GMP website at www.greatermeredithprogram.com.
As part of the Spooktacular Series of Events, the Greater Meredith Program is holding a Scarecrow Hunt throughout the town and asking for votes for the People’s Choice Award Scarecrow. Nineteen unique scarecrows can be seen throughout town at various locations listed in the guide. Visit the scarecrows listed in the guide, vote for your favorite, and drop your ballot in the orange box on the porch of Hermit Woods Winery. Ballots will be entered into a drawing and the winner will receive a Hermit Woods Winery Tour for four plus a “Cauldron of Goodies.”
This year’s festivities are guaranteed to offer entertainment and fun for all ages, and to bring together the business and resident communities!
