Ghosts will haunt the coast tonight

Published: Thursday, October 31, 2013 at 09:21 AM.

The South Gulf Coast Volunteer Fire Department will have a haunted fire truck on site for children to explore…if they dare.

“We want to slow kids down a little and engage them more,” said Chamber of Commerce director Paula Pickett, who organized this year’s event. “We’re amping it up this year and making it fun for the entire family.”

The cake walk is a fundraiser for the Merchant’s Association to purchase Christmas lights for the trees along Reid.

A surplus of 5,000 glow sticks left over from the Centennial Celebration in July will allow kids to build an interactive art installation.

Area restaurants will be open and ready to feed hungry attendees and will offer food and drink specials in honor of the holiday.

Other entertainment will include live music from Freddie D and Lola, who will perform near Hannon Insurance while the Boyer Band will entertain from the City Commons gazebo.

Though it was Pickett’s first time coordinating the event, she described the planning process as “fluid” and said that everyone on the event committee was easy to work with.
