On October 29, H Street invites you to put the H in your Halloween at a corridor-long series of activities called *APPY *ALLOWEEN. Over 20 participating businesses will take part in the FRILLS & CHILLS Halloween decorating contest and PUMPKIN PROMENADE carving contest, the winners of which will be determined by patrons who will vote by ballot.

From 5-8:30pm, patrons are invited to partake in a HAUNT HUNT, visiting each contestant’s business to view the décor and pumpkin carving. At each business, they will receive a special sticker with one letter in the word *ALLOWEEN. Once all of the stickers are collected, patrons can submit their ballots (with their votes included) in the ballot box located in the Auto Zone parking lot in the 1200 block of H Street. Five HAUNT HUNT winners will be chosen at random to receive prizes with concert tickets, gift cards, t-shirts and more.

The winners of the FRILLS & CHILLS and PUMPKIN PROMENADE contests will be announced at 9pm. Winners of the HAUNT HUNT will be drawn immediately after.

Following the winners circle, at 9:30pm, Joy of Motion and Atlas Performing Arts Center present the annual THRILLER flash mob, along with several other dance performances and the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW.

The itemized schedule is as follows:
