Third Annual Purcellville Halloween Block Party
Over 6,000 people attended the Purcellville Halloween Block Party last year coming from all over Loudoun and Clarke counties and beyond; ranging in ages from infant to ninety years old. This family friendly event promises to be even bigger and better this year. The party will be Saturday October 26 from 5–9pm in Old Town Purcellville on 21st Street, which will be closed to vehicular traffic and transformed into Loudoun County’s largest Halloween Party.
Starting at 5pm, Mr. Knick Knack, one of the area’s best-loved children’s musicians, will have the little ones dancing and groovin’. With just his guitar and his voice he plays upbeat and uplifting music
centered on the power of the human heart.
Roam up and down the street all evening, watching the funny and ghoulish characters walking around. You can only wonder if these people are wearing costumes‑or has Purcellville been invaded by ghouls? Play tons of Halloween theme games, The Rat Toss, Pumpkin Tic Tac Toe, Pin the Nose on the Witch, among others, all with prizes for all.
Plan on having dinner at the party, food from Magnolias, Boodacades BBQ, The Roving Italian food truck, Lickety Splitz Hawaiian Shave Ice and Fun Country Kettle Corn, all set up right on 21st Street. The spotlight of the night will be the costume contest with four divisions: infant to 5 years old, 6 to 12 years old, and the Pet division (everyone’s favorite), which is open to all pets that come in costume. Last but not least, the teen and adults division will be judged. Over $2,000 in cash, prizes, and trophies will be awarded including $500 grand prize for the best overall costume.
Admission is free to the Purcellville Halloween Block Party along with free parking throughout the town.
