The revelry swings into high gear on Lake Avenue on Halloween as Lake Worth's inaugural Halloween Street gets under way Saturday at noon. Organizers promise three stages of music, "Coney Island-style" freak shows, a psychic fair, costume contests for kids, pets, and adults, and arts and crafts vendors galore.
The Rum Shack stage will have open-mic hopefuls strumming their stuff all day, while the Cheney Brothers Cultural Plaza stage will be headlined by Illumination, known for producing wacky bluegrass covers of contemporary hits from the likes of Metallica and Sheryl Crow.
The main stage, meanwhile, will appeal to the tie-dyed flower child in all of us. Playing early is spacy jam band the Burnin Smyrnans, from, you guessed it, New Smyrna Beach. (We wonder what they've been burning?) Singer/songwriter Shauna Sweeney and her backing band take the stage next and will uplift the goblins roaming around with their sunny melodies. Deerfield Beach's the Resolvers' fluid dub will make sure everyone's feeling irie. Rounding out the bill will be the headliner, Jupiter Beach's riddim 'n' roots four-piece B-Liminal, whose island vibes will have fans of Sublime and Jack Johnson jamming along.
