Cola Neighborhood Kings of Halloween

Newer, ‘Cul de Sac(y)’ ‘Hoods Are Kings of Halloween
When it comes to Halloween in Columbia, SC there’s no shortage of fun places to take the kids. In my experience however, two downtown neighborhoods stand above the rest. In fact, I’d put King’s Grant and “The Hamptons” up against any area in South Carolina.

This year we found ourselves at the King’s Grant Clubhouse around 5:00 PM. As we tried to park, the amount of golf carts and SUV’s were enough to impress any Halloween enthusiast. In short, it was total mayhem.

The huge crowd included hundreds Batmen, Sumo wrestlers, Tinkerbells and ladybugs. It was something to see. My little girl was probably the smallest one there on two feet and she was completely mesmerized.

Trolling through the neighborhood on a golf cart is another experience in itself. It’s an obstacle course of hay rides, police officers and hundreds of costumed kids.

I’m impressed with King’s Grant and The Hamptons. These two neighborhoods really have it going on when it comes to community events. Halloween is an event that provides a perfect microcosm of what a neighborhood can become.
