Hello!
Haunted Round up the family tonight and head downtown for the 2013 Halloween Parade! The parade begins at 7 p.m. at the corner of 3rd and Brady Streets. Click here for a parade route map.  Before or after the parade, enjoy new pasta dishes from Fresh Deli by Nostalgia Farms while watching "Rocky Horror Picture Show." Help create a Halloween tradition! Keep the scares going by heading to the last night of the Davenport Jaycees Haunted House afterward.
What happens when you mix Stephen King, John Mellencamp, and T-Bone Burnett?  You get the incredible Ghost Brothers of Darkland County! Don't miss this southern supernatural musical at the Adler on Sunday night!   Until then, zombify yourself for the Rise of the Zombies after Halloween party at the RiverCenter on Saturday. Keep in mind the Iowa Pro Bikini and NPC Battle of Champions presented by Liquid Sun Rayz is at the RiverCenter this weekend, too.
Stop by the Figge before the Halloween Parade tonight and hear from local community members as they share their ideas and interests through photos during PechaKucha Night. Did we mention there'd be complimentary appetizers and a cash bar, too? If you're looking for another event for the whole family, venture back on Saturday for El Dia de los Muertos Family Fiesta! Enjoy interactive galleries and studios along with photo ops, delicious treats, and more.  Go ahead and tour the Day of the Dead Exhibition while you're there!
The River Music Experience is also continuing the celebration of Halloween festivities into the weekend for this month's Deja vu Rendezvous series tomorrow night. Come dressed up in your Halloween best for a musical performance by Have Your Cake. The band will be the host of the costume contest...prizes included!
Treat yourself to a night of home brewed beer and homegrown artists Saturday at the German American Heritage Center. Enjoy German style beer from MUGZ, a DIY printing project, hot pretzels and more during GAHC's second annual beer tasting and fundraiser, Arts and Draughts! Give the kids a chance to have some fun on Sunday during a lantern making workshop to celebrate St. Martins Day!
VOTE Last, but certainly not least, remember to VOTE on Tuesday, Nov. 5!  Do your civic duty and vote in Tuesday's local elections.  Remember, you can even register the same day you vote in Iowa!  So if you've recently moved or you're a student in college, registering and voting is still a piece of cake.  Click here to find your voting location and for easy instructions on how to vote and what to expect on Tuesday.
See you downtown!
