Location

Halloween is the best time to be in Irvington!

The Pleasant Run Vampire Run begins outside of the Irvington United Methodist Church (30 N. Audubon Road in Indianapolis, IN 46219) and winds through the streets of Irvington, an Indianapolis neighborhood.

This run is a beloved tradition of the Historic Irvington Halloween Festival. For 73 years, the Festival has brought together thousands of residents, dozens of neighborhood organizations, and countless eastside businesses in a fun-filled celebration. The Festival and its associated events are designed to bring awareness to the community, commerce to local businesses and sponsors, and fun to the children of Irvington and Indianapolis. The celebration encompasses a week of events, including musicians, contests, Halloween-themed movies, storytelling, ghost tours, live theater, a masquerade ball, a haunted puppet show - you can enjoy dozens of activities.


The Historic Irvington Halloween Festival is organized by the Historic Irvington Community Council, a 501(c)3 organization that provides a voice to the neighborhood of Irvington on issues such as public services, zoning, and works to improve the community and the lives of its residents.
