with Team Honeycutt
With Halloween right around the corner, Team Honeycutt has talked about their favorite October events in and around Cabarrus County where people can “fall into fall.” Below you will find the TOP 3 neighborhoods our savvy agents recommend stopping by with your kiddos to have a fantastic trick-or-treating adventure.
1. Downtown Concord, N.C. – Candy Crawl
The City of Concord hosts an annual Candy Crawl in downtown Concord where businesses along Union Street pass out candy to trick-or-treaters. This year the Candy Crawl will take place on October 31st from 3pm until 5 pm. South and North Union Street homeowners also partake in the Candy Crawl. The City of Concord encourages not to trick-or-treat past 8:00 p.m. for safety reasons which can be found here: After 8 is too Late.
2. Oldenburg, Mount Pleasant, N.C.
The homeowners in Oldenburg see many trick-or-treaters come through for candy, and occasionally even a haunted house. A few of Team Honeycutt’s agents are from Mount Pleasant and agree that Oldenburg is a must-stop for their children to trick-or-treat in. A great benefit of trick-or-treating in Oldenburg is being able to park in town and walk from Main Street into Oldenburg or vice-versa and enjoy all the town has to offer. Many families will stop at one of the town restaurants for a family meal before going out for the evening stroll.
3. Downtown Kannapolis, N.C. – Sweet Street
Another sweet spot to visit this year is downtown Kannapolis. There will be a trunk-or-treat event hosted in Kannapolis, N.C. this year on Wednesday October 31st from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Bring the kids and family to this event and enjoy music, games, food and fun along the street in downtown Kannapolis.
Just like those pumpkin spice lattes you can’t help but start drinking in September, there are other ways to enjoy the season before breaking out the treat bags. “There is much more fun to be had in our community” says Diane Honeycutt, “the fun doesn’t stop with trick-or-treating. There are numerous pumpkin patches, hayrides, haunted trails, and corn mazes our community offers.” Below are Team Honeycutt’s recommended TOP 3 October events you need to be sure to check out.
