It’s the weekend before Halloween! Since the spookiest day of the year falls on a Tuesday, people are celebrating early. But not to fear! There’s plenty to do on the day of as well. Here’s a sampling of some of the things happening in town (plus a few non-scary events for the faint of heart). And check out our video running down Asheville’s ghosts you need to know.
