Weekend Wanderings - Halloween

Grove Park Inn, Asheville





It has been a busy few days at our house - Pop was away, Chica, Yoko and Joey were sick and Mom was handling it all by her self.  Everything is fine now so better late than never for our weekend post - just tin time for Halloween.

Mom works at an art gallery inside this hotel.  The Grove Park Inn was built in 1913.  Perfect for spooky occasions like this.  They go all out for Halloween with a pumpkin carving contest, Trick or Treat and a party!

 Some of the entries were very creative this year - lots of fun checking them all out.  Do stop back each day before Halloween and we have special posts planned!  What are you dressing up as for Halloween?

Wow, they do go all out! Very creative and impressive pumpkins/decor. :-)

We actually don't celebrate Halloween, it's just not something our mom gets into.

But it's fun to see what others do!

Halloween kind of passes us by mol, but great to meet you and I think you are doing a terrific work with the feral cats :)

Ooooo! It looks very Halloween-y over here! Fun!

I don't really do Halloween. I am that neighbour that keeps their lights off and hides in the bedroom and doesn't answer the doorbell... LOL!!!

Wishing you a good one!
