πŸŒƒ Hanover Halloween

It all started in the 1970s with a block party and has continued to wow people across the country with live bands, lighted houses, and tons of candy! Did we mention it’s nationally-known as one of the best places to visit for trick-or-treating?

“If some neighborhoods in Richmond, Va., seem dark and quiet on Halloween, it may be because all the trick-or-treaters are lined up on a 1/4 mile stretch of Hanover Avenue. The 1900 block of two dozen rowhouses become a theme park of lights, life-size mummies and decorations. There might be a dance show, a live band or air cannons from a pirate ship that blows out Halloween candy. One year, neighbors decorated each of their homes as separate rooms of a haunted mansion.” Wall Street Journal

The block party that spans the 1800-2200 blocks begins at dusk on Halloween night, where you’ll find residents sitting outside their homes to hand out sweets. Don’t live in the neighborhood? That’s perfectly fine because all are welcome! Neighbors get competitive with decorations, which means you’ll see everything from Freddy Krueger to the Stay-Puff Marshmallow Man.
