Halloween in Walhalla SC was just a simple holiday till Henry Brown moved to town. He bought the house across from the Westview Cemetery. Halloween was his favorite holiday and he knew owning a house by a cemetery would make the holiday more fun.
In 2006 he started making plans on how to make Halloween his holiday in Walhalla. He invited his porch society friends to come over and help out.
- Sam and Kay lived in a remote part of the county, he knew they would not have many ghost and goblins coming to visit.
- Julie and Rick had a steep driveway that no one wanted to drive on a good day, must less try to get up and down in the dark of Halloween night.
- Verla and Bill lived in a gated community with no kids so they were invited.
- And last but not least Alan Jackson was invited to finish off the list.
Halloween was on a Tuesday night, the weather was cool but mild. The kids started coming by about 5 pm and by 8 the party was over. 38 little ghost and goblins came out that night. The cutest one was Cooper from around the corner. He came as a farmer with his overalls and John Deer Cap. He had a handkerchief to wipe away the sweat. We also had ninja turtles and many princesses.
Fun was had by all and many of the kids vowed to come again next year....the planning had started. Halloween in Walhalla SC was going to be the best in the world!!!
