Halloweentown

Halloween is next week!  It’s sort of sneaking up on us this year, perhaps because of the warm weather we’ve been having this fall.  Until yesterday, that is.  Finally, the air has that chilly autumn snap to it, and the local Halloween happenings are right around the corner:

Take a walk down Hope Street in downtown Bristol for the 10th Annual Halloween Walkabout on Sunday, October 27th from 1pm ’til 3pm.  The Downtown Bristol Merchants’ Association invites you to bring your children (dressed in costume) downtown and stroll all the shops for an afternoon of trick-or-treating.

And for families with older children and teens, the Mt. Hope Masqueraders invite you to visit their Haunted House, if you dare, on Tuesday, October 29th and Wednesday, October 30th from 5:30pm ’til 8:30pm in the MHHS Performing Arts Center on Chestnut Street in Bristol.  There will be two tours: Scary, for the bravest guests, and Not-So-Scary, for the younger (and/or more timid) crowd.  There will also be face-painting, a fortune-teller, refreshments, games, and prizes.  Tickets are $5 and come with two game-passes; contact Carol Schlink at MHHS for more information.
