Tall Betsy returns to Halloween Block Party in Cleveland

CLEVELAND, Tennessee (WDEF) – The legend lives on tonight at the 30th anniversary of the Halloween Block Party in Cleveland.

Tall Betsy will make an appearance at 7PM.

The character has endured after appearing in the 1920 in the city of Cleveland.

She is based on a real person, who parents conjured up to keep their kids from getting into too much trouble at night.

And so the legend was born about what Tall Betsy would do to children who stay out too late.

Check out the poem of Tall Betsy.


The 30th annual Block Party runs from 5-10 PM tonight downtown at the Courthouse.

It features bands, jump houses and the freshest candy you’ll find (after all, the Mars plant is here in town)
