Brought to you by the Paranormal Museum, House of Independents, Parlor Gallery and the Asbury Park Business Committee, Bianca Freda  --Co-Chairperson of the Business Committee says,

“A lot of Halloween has had to change, but we figured we could all pull together and have a fun old fashioned event.  The Jack O’ Lanterns will all be carved by local volunteers and the park set up will be maintained by local citizens. If we have learned nothing else during the pandemic we have learned that little things can mean a lot!”


So come out and have some fun. The festival is free but donations will be accepted for a great cause: Asbury Park Dinner Table  is a non-profit that has been feeding those in need since Covid began.

Masks and social distancing are required for this event.
