The spooky faces of Spookmoot were out in their bewitching best over the Halloween weekend as Folkmoot held its first Spookmoot Celebration and, well, excuse for a big ol’ party!
What a great time! And the community came out in frightening ways to curdle the blood of any usually upstanding citizen!
Our sponsors deserve a special, “thank you,” for making it all possible: The Mountaineer, principle sponsor; as well as Haywood Regional Medical Center, Downtown Waynesville Association, Western Carolina University, Beverly-Hanks & Associates, Mast General Store, LN Davis Insurance, United Community Bank, Shepperd Insurance, Relevanza, Women of Waynesville, Ingles Markets, Angie Franklin State Farm, Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, The Print Haus, Haywood Builders Supply & First United Methodist Church, Waynesville.
And, yes, we had some over achievers in the costume department!
The medal-winners for Friday night’s Kids Carnival included Gold Pumpkin Winner, “The Little Gypsy.” The Silver Pumpkin went to, “The Cowgirl & The Pixie,” and the Bronze Pumpkin was awarded to, “The Cutie Witch, with Princess Mom & Lion Dad.”
Honorable Mentions for the entire weekend of costumes and mirth include: Zayna May – Chuckie’s Bride; Braided Momma & Baby Dinosaur, She Devil (Mieko Thomson), The Skeleton Keys (Barbara & Jonathon Key), NY Mets Fans (Jody & Bradley Escaravage), International Ghouls (Diana Kuzmich & Michael Teacle), the Good Witch & the Grim Reaper (Marsha Rice & Patrick Parton) & Little Red Riding Hood & Goth Big Bad Wolf (Michelle Jacobs & David Elder).
Everyone was impressive and thanks to Patrick Parton Photography we have nearly everyone captured – on film (and video). We just can’t quite get them all posted on this little blog space. Check out our Facebook Page, or our Instagram or Tumblr for many of the photos & videos and keep an eye on our galleries here on the website and our Flickr Gallery where we’ll be posting all the photos soon!
