    • I was only able to find the events above that weren’t canceled this year. If anyone knows of an additional event, hopefully, they will comment below. Of course, you are still welcome to do neighborhood trick-or-treating.

  1. Why do they post the dates but not the times? Trying to figure out the Greenville farmers market what time will they start and end?

  2. So much confusion about events and times online. My kids didn’t get to a single event while it was actually happening! We accidentally ran across one in Elizabethton that we did not see online, but it ended 7 minutes after we arrived. All event times listed on these sites were either incomplete or incorrect. Bummer for the kids. Thank goodness we had fun at home all day.

    • Sorry you had a difficult time. There are no event times listed on this page at all because I know they can sometimes change. All our events are linked to the main event listing where you can check the time. If the times are wrong on the event listing, there is nothing I can do about it, because we can’t control listings outside of our site.
