By: West Bottoms Historic Entertainment District
The street scene will include food trucks and booths with beer, wine, and spirits options. Whether it is hot or cold, the special drinks featured have guests covered warm mulled cider and or frosty Margaritas.
"Sadly the haunt season is almost over," said Amber Arnett-Bequeaith, aka the Queen of Haunts. "But every holiday has so much fun to offer, and the West Bottoms always represents the excitement of the season."
The Festival of the Full Moon street events happen every First Friday weekend and highlights the month's moon. November is the Beaver Moon, an animal that is particularly active this time of year building its winter home – just like a lot of the area's holiday shoppers. Festival of the Full Moon will have a new theme each month. The last event for 2019 is December's "Balls in the Bottoms." The holiday season will kick-off Thursday, December 5, from 5 pm to 7 pm with the lighting at 6 pm. There will be entertainment and drinks.
About the West Bottoms Historic Entertainment District:
The West Bottoms Historic Entertainment District, located just off the 12th Street Bridge, has 22 warehouses in a thirteen-block area with approximately 600 vendors and more than 25 stores and restaurants. Many of the large, multi-story buildings have histories starting over 120 years ago. They have now repurposed this vast space to earn the title of the largest, year-round, indoor vintage and entertainment district. The District is the destination for interior decorators and designers, collectors and consumers seeking stylish décor and gift options with history and patina that cannot be duplicated. The weekend's street entertainment, food trucks, and bars are all part of the Festival of the Full Moon. Full Moon Escape Rooms add another adventure option in the area. westbottoms.com
