  •  Baltimore, MD
  •  Charleston, SC
  •  Charlotte, NC 
  •  Chicago, IL
  •  New Orleans, LA
  •  Portland, OR

“Halloween is all about fun and a little mischief, and our mascot Yorrik knows that better than anyone,” said Odette Welling, Vice President of Halloween at Party City. “We're Halloween-obsessed at Party City and are beyond excited to provide consumers with an engaging, interactive way to jumpstart the season and officially countdown to Halloween weekend. We can't wait to see how many people find Yorrik in these spooky cities.”
