The Gloaming

October 27, 2023 - October 28, 2023

Come join the Burke Community for two nights of spooky fun in East Burke Village!


Friday from 3-5pm there will be pumpkin carving on the green at the East Burke Library.  Pumpkin carving kits will be provided by Greer's Auto and Union Bank will have a free pumpkin for the first 35 participants.  


Free glo-sticks for kids will be given out at the Pumpkin Carving or you can pick them up at East Burke Market.


Saturday from 4-7pm will be the main event!  The carved pumpkins will be displayed along a Haunted Trail going from behind The Orange Rind to the Kingdom Trails pump track and East Burke School.   East Burke School will have a trick or treating station set up at the end of the trail as well as some freshly made, hot mulled cider.


Cafe Lotti will be open with fun activities like pumpkin shot-put!


Lots of cars will be decked out for Trunk or Treat fun over at the East Burke Sports/Sport Thoma parking lot.  If you want to sign up to bring your car and set up for Trunk or Treat, email or stop by East Burke Market and talk to Kellie.


The Burke Mountain Club will have a fairy garden house set up inside or on the lawn depending on the weather.


Village homes and businesses will also be welcoming trick or treaters.  Look for the black and orange balloons to know where kids are welcome and bowls are filled with candy!   


Following your tricks & treats and haunted trail adventures, head to The Village Inn for hot apple cider (plus some adult bevs at The Sloshie Shed) and an outdoor movie. The Hocus Pocus movie will begin at 6pm.
