The crowds on Franklin Street for Halloween in Chapel Hill
Here in Chapel Hill, Halloween has always been a Very Big Deal. Franklin Street, in Chapel Hill’s downtown area, has made a name for itself as the place to be on Halloween night. Upwards of 80,000 people crowd the area each year, decked out in full regalia. There is no such thing as being too old for dress-up around here! Still not sure what to be for Halloween this year? You can never go wrong with a literary reference!
A red A attached to a long dress instantly transforms you into Hester Prynne.
If Charles Dickens is more your style, get a long white dress, a single shoe and stop your watch at 20 minutes till 9 to go as Miss Havisham. A rotting wedding cake would be an added touch.
And if you're in the mood for something punnier, become a Freudian Slip with just a slip and the word Freud taped to it!
Have a spooky holiday!
