Skeleton Festival street closures

harrisonburgHarrisonburg Downtown Renaissance presents the Skeleton Festival on Saturday, October 21, from 4 pm to 8 pm in downtown Harrisonburg.

This event begins with trick-or-treating for children at downtown businesses from 4 pm-6 pm. The party moves over to the Turner Pavilion, 228 S. Liberty St., for an all-ages celebration from 6 pm-8 pm.

For safety reasons, Main Street will be closed during the trick-or-treating portion of the event. Parking decks and parking lots throughout downtown will still be open and parking will be easily accessible from side streets during the street closures. Drivers are invited to approach downtown from Liberty or Mason Streets and enjoy shopping and dining downtown as usual as all businesses will be open during their posted hours.

A list of the street closings is attached and you can find more information about the event at

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
