Suwannee Hulaween has announced the costume theme for their annual event, set to take place at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park from Thursday, October 24th through Sunday, October 27th.
This year, Hulaween will celebrate the ’90s with a “Smells Like Teen Spirit of the Suwannee” theme. As the festival notes in their theme announcement,
Are You Afraid of the Dark? You should be! #HulaweenFL is gonna be the Nightmare Before Christmas, and we’re ready to see your best freaks & geeks or grunge & goth as we take on the best of the 90s deep in the GUTS of Spirit Lake! Gather your Toon Squad, wipe off the Slime and Scream but, don’t forget… it’s all just a bunch of Hocus Pocus, so run Forest, run.
The announcement also reveals that the festival will announce a new batch of lineup additions in the coming week.
