Rising Sun's fifth annual Fall Spooktacular will include an additional road closure.
In order to make way for a zip line, a portion of Pearl Street will be closed on Saturday, October 14.
Spooktacular, the massive pre-Halloween family event chaired by Mayor Travis Marion will be held from 1-5 p.m. in the Center Square area of downtown. There will be activities for the whole family. The municipal parking lot next to Sun Pharmacy and Center Square will also be closed to traffic. "Spooktacular is a business-sponsored event. It would not be possible without the businesses," said Marion. "When we started five years ago, we had 400 people. Now we're up to 3,000."
