Horror for the Holidays 6

November 24, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

The 6th annual Horror For The Holidays is coming to town with a bigger space for more vendors and an extra day! Over the years, the market has grown and grown to horrific proportions so we’re giving it our all to offer Austin a wicked weekend of horror. Thank you Austin for showing support to our kick ass vendors!

HFTH is especially made for horror fans and will feature over 60 specialty vendors selling horror-inspired, gothic and dark merchandise such as horror art, home decor, clothing, vinyl, collectibles, gifts and more.

**Winner of the Austin Chronicle’s Best of Austin award: Shopping – Best Nightmare in time for Christmas!**

EVIL SANTA BOOTH: Take a family/friend photo with Evil Santa. This year’s Evil Santa will be provided by Austin-based production company, Hawgfly Productions, Inc. They have worked on several high-profile movies and TV shows so we can’t wait to meet Santa this year!

KRAMPUS PARADE: SUNDAY AT 2PM
New this year, we’re honored to have several production/haunted attraction teams conjure up some amazing Krampus’es to walk in the parade:

Bat City Scaregrounds / HorrorWeb
Hawgfly Productions
House of Torment
and our own secret B.O.T. team

They will all have booths and Hawgfly will be doing a LIVE MAKEUP DEMO of their Krampus at their booth! Stop by and watch the magic happen before the parade.

PLUS WE’RE OPENING UP THE PARADE TO THE PUBLIC!
And you can join!

The public is invited to show up to walk the parade and get a chance to win the contest at the end. The professionals will be the judges of the best Krampus and will crown the winner with the title of KRAMPUS KING. The KING will receive the title and a gift swag bag. Please visit our website for complete info, arrival time, rules and how to enter. www.bloodovertexas.com

CREEPERS CAR SHOW: Come check out some cool horror rides and dream of Evil Santa parking one underneath your tree some day. Have a creepy car you’d like to show? Fill out the form to enter: https://forms.gle/QfhRLuZa1eKBdVaR7

SAFE Austin: This year we are honored to provide several opportunities to benefit the SAFE Alliance who’s mission is to Stop Abuse For Everyone. The SAFE Alliance is a merger of Austin Children’s Shelter and SafePlace, both long-standing and respected human service agencies in Austin serving the survivors of child abuse, sexual assault and exploitation, and domestic violence. You will be able to donate cash at the door, drop off physical items off their wish list (to be posted closer to the event date) and bid on several amazing items in our Silent Auction. More info on the Auction to come.

RAFFLES: As always, we will be holding several raffles throughout both days of cool prizes that you can win. The highlight being our traditional raffle item — the most horrific meal of all — the TURDUCKEN! More info to come as we get closer.

PERFORMANCES: Enjoy the magical musings of Maverick on both days of the event. Get bewildered by sideshow sword swallower Juan Martinez on Saturday. Both great performers you won’t want to miss!

MEET ED GUINN: Come meet Ed Guinn, the truck driver from the original 1973 Texas Chainsaw Massacre!

This year the market will all be inside, all on one floor and will have plenty of parking. Food, drinks and alcohol will be available.

Tickets will be sold at the door. $5

ALL AGES: Notice to parents…This is a family-friendly event; however, some content may not be appropriate for some children (maybe even some adults). There will be monsters walking around and vendor items that may scare the wee ones. If your spawn digs Halloween, (and so do you) then everyone should be fine at the market. It’s all in fun!
