Some things never die. Sadly, that’s not the case for everyone’s favorite vampire soap, The Vampire Diaries. Ian Somerhalder, or Damon as we prefer him, announced via Twitter that Season 8 will be the show’s final season. To say goodbye properly, you know that Mystic Falls is planning a huge celebration. This will be the final nail in the coffin, so we’re going to party all night.
The premiere of the final season will happen on Friday, October 21st. Just like our previous premiere parties, Covington will turn into Mystic Falls for the evening. Our Square will be packed with visitors from all across the country, and some international fans too. The Covington Square’s businesses will also be open and ready to welcome you. You can be sure the Mystic Grill will have some delicious meals and drink deals that will only be available for the Season 8 Premiere!
Vampire Stalkers has also released a list of special tours that will be happening over the course of the day. You’ll have to visit their website to register, but you can look forward to several new filming locations from The Vampire Diaries.This tour is selling out fast, so reserve your spot today!
Then, at 8:15 pm, the Season 8 premiere will begin. Bring your blankets, chairs, coffins, whatever keeps you comfortable, and pick your spot on the Square! Remember, this viewing is a free event, but the best viewing spaces are limited. Be sure to get there early, to stake your claim. Did we mention there will be contests, prizes, and giveaways before the viewing?
Join us as we say goodbye to our favorite vampire friends, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. Covington has enjoyed eight years in the role of Mystic Falls, Virginia and we’ve fallen in love with the Salvatore brothers. You know what they say; Love Never Dies. So, join us as we celebrate the final premiere of The Vampire Diaries, on October 21st on the Covington Square.
