Show off your Halloween costume at the Ghent Business Association’s annual Masquerade in Ghent Halloween Block Party and Costume Content on Friday, October 29th, from 5:00 – 8:00 pm. This years event will once again take place in the parking lot behind Dog’n’Burger, on the corner of 20th and Manteo Streets.

Fly your broom sticks in early: Registration for the costume contest begins at 4:30, and the Costume Parade starts at 5:30. Judges will award prizes in categories including Best Adult Costume, Best Children’s Costume, Best Family or Group Collaboration, Best Pet Costume and Best in Show.

There will be live music from regional favorites, the Jim Newsom Quartet; games for kids and grownups alike; refreshments and Oktoberfest beverages featuring locally crafted beer from Ghent’s own O’Connor Brewing Company. Individually designed masks created for the “Mask Making Madness” contest will be on display and available for sale in a silent auction.

Masquerade in Ghent is free and open to the public. Ample parking can be found along the street and in surrounding shopping centers and parking lots. Don’t miss the frightfully fun-tastic time at this year’s Masquerade in Ghent…and bring a friend too because no one likes to scream alone!

Masquerade in Ghent is proudly presented by the Ghent Business Association and sponsored by Old Point National Bank.

Ghent with a weeklong “Greening of Ghent” celebration from April 16th to

20th Street parking lot between Dog-n-Burger and Fleet Printing on
Friday evening, April 16th.

Beginning the next day, Ghent retailers and service providers will
welcome spring with special sales and opportunities. Area restaurants
will offer pre-fixed meals at discounted prices. Many merchants will be
