OCTOBER 30, 2023 – VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA – Over 5,000 participants Halloween hustled their way through the Virginia Beach Oceanfront during the Old Point National Bank Wicked 10K and 5K presented by Bon Secours. They were greeted along the way with Thriller Dancers, Zombies and treats at every mile. Ghosts, goblins, and ghouls flew up and down Atlantic Avenue before turning on the boardwalk in costume for a perfect spooktacular photo finish.
