Casting Call: Halloween Festival Trailer Filming at Scare Fair Costume Party

Posted By on April 7, 2019

OBX Entertainment presents a Halfway to Halloween celebration of the strange and unusual, the inaugural Outer Banks Spring Scare Fair, coming to Kill Devil Hills this month, featuring two days of spooky treats, creepy curiosities, monster photo ops, and more from a curated collection of local and visiting vendors, but that’s not all, as we will be filming our official promo video for the 2019 Halloween International Film Festival.

In addition to the vendor show, the Scare Fair weekend will also include the Halfway-to-Halloween Costume Party on Friday night, April 19th at Secret Island, beginning at 8:00 p.m. and featuring an all-ages costume contest at 9:00 p.m. and live entertainment by DJ Styles starting at 10:00 p.m. for ages 18 and up.

OBX Entertainment will be filming footage of those in costume to be used in the official Halloween International Film Festival trailer, promoting the local independent film festival online and playing before most major movie releases at the R/C Theatres multiplex in Kill Devil Hills this summer. All those who wish to be in the video should be in costume and “camera ready” at 8:00 p.m. (The Halloween Film Festival takes place Oct. 3-5, 2019.)

The Spring Scare Fair is happening on Friday and Saturday, April 19th and 20th, with the vendor floor open from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Secret Island Restaurant in Kill Devil Hills. Formerly known as Port O’ Call, the venue is an iconic local landmark with Victorian era architecture, a gaslight-style saloon, and the oldest nightclub on the Outer Banks. And it is haunted.

After dark on Saturday night, April 20th, OBX Entertainment and Secret Island present a tribute to The Misfits, featuring The Clawbacks and Non Compliance, both performing individual sets and then coming together as “Danazig” to honor the horror punk legends and close out Scare Fair Weekend with an epic finale. This special concert event starts at 10:00 p.m.

Discounted accommodations are being provided by the historic Cavalier by the Sea, another local landmark and one of the oldest motels on the beach located directly across the street from Secret Island, is offering 20% off a block of pool side rooms for guests attending the Scare Fair. Call 252-441-5585 and be sure to mention that you’re attending the Scare Fair to reserve a room.

Admission to the Scare Fair vendor floor and all After Dark events is free to the public.

This event is sponsored in part by the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau and Halloween Daily News.
