Come one, come all! Join us on Thursday, August 1, 2024, to celebrate the Spirit Halloween Flagship Store Grand Opening.

The event emcee will ask attendees to line up for entry at approximately 9:30 a.m. and attendees will enter the Spirit Halloween flagship store based on their lanyard number after the official ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. If you do not have a lanyard, you will be allowed to enter the store on a first-come, first-served basis after all participants with a lanyard. Entry with a lanyard begins at approximately 10 a.m. and the store will be open until 8 p.m.
