RICHMOND, Va. -- Bellytimber Tavern in the Fan was filled with ghouls and goblins for a free Halloween festival Saturday.

The Nightmare on Plum Street event featured seven bands rocking out on the stage.

From 3 until 11 p.m., adults played corn hole-in their costumes, while kids got a chance to play in the photo booth. And pets got in on the fun, too.

The money raised from the event benefited the Ring Dog Rescue.

"Looked into what it took to close down the street and then started booking bands," said Patrick Stamper, who owns Bellytimber Tavern and organized the event. "Next thing you know, it really snowballed into a pretty big event,  so hopefully this is the first annual the first of many.”
