"We are home to nationally-acclaimed haunted houses – where many visitors make it a Halloween tradition to go in the evenings. America Haunts, a nationally respected industry authority, picked the Beast in Kansas City as the best haunted attraction in 2019," said Amber Arnett-Bequeaith, aka the Queen of Haunts. "We'll have some of our more social cast members out during the day – from a werewolf, to clowns, to the iconic witch. People love to have their selfies with cast – no matter their ages!"

The Festival of the Full Moon street events happen every First Friday weekend and highlight the month's moon. October is the Hunter's Moon from the hunts of Native Americans – a typical bountiful month. The West Bottoms is a great place to hunt something unique - often with a backstory. The thrill of the find and its story either added to your décor, your things, or worn evokes a special meaning - the opposite of mass-produced.

Festival of the Full Moon will have a new theme each month. Upcoming events include:

November's "Blessings in the Bottoms," and December's "Balls in the Bottoms". Each will have music, entertainment, food specialties, and co*cktails that fit the theme. The co*cktail this month is the West Bottoms' spin on the Soul Taker.

Many of the large, multi-story buildings have histories starting over 120 years ago and have now repurposed this vast space to earn the title of the largest, year-round, indoor vintage and entertainment district. The District is the destination for interior decorators and designers, collectors and consumers seeking stylish décor and gift options with a history and patina that cannot be duplicated. The weekend's street entertainment, food trucks, and bars are all part of the Festival of the Full Moon. Full Moon Escape Rooms add another adventure option in the area.

The Edge of Hell, Beast, and Macabre Cinema Haunted Houses all deliver frightful fun from their large buildings located in the Historic West Bottoms Entertainment District off the 12th Street Bridge near downtown Kansas City. The Queen of Haunts and 'scarecast' generate fear with the help of sophisticated sets, technology and the world-record breaking snake, Medusa. The company makes helping children and animal charities a priority, including their participation in the anti-bullying charity "Don't Be a Monster". Each weekend the area hosts the Festival of the Full Moon outside the haunted houses that includes free hayrides, roaming beasts and monsters, food trucks and more.
