Battle of Bands, arts, crafts coming up at Halloween Hoot downtown

By Patrice Stewart · 340-2446

Spaces are available for a few more arts and crafts booths and entertainers for the Oct. 27 “Halloween Hoot.”

The downtown Decatur event, which will feature two stages with entertainment from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is growing, according to Randy Tardy, events chairman for the Merchants Association Steering Committee.

“We’ve got 40 booths registered and have pretty well filled up Second Avenue, but we’re hoping for 60 and can set up around the corners,” Tardy said.

Some times are available on the second entertainment stage, he said.

The Hoot will include a Battle of the Bands, with the winner playing at The Brick on New Year’s Eve, plus a variety of singers and musicians.

Screaming and costume contests, “trunk-or-treating,” sidewalk chalk art contest, moon walk and other children’s activities are planned, along with bingo and two performances of the play “I’m Sorry the Bridge Is Out, You’ll Have to Spend the Night.”

To reserve a booth or entertainment spot, contact Judi Tardy at Selma’s on Second, 324-A Second Ave. S.E., 580-8100 or 318-2892, or e-mail rjtardy @
