Halloween is around the corner, with its celebrations of all things ghoulish.

And, in that spirit (pun intended), there are host of ways to enjoy the frightening festivities.

Here are just a few:


1. Port St. Joe’s Ghost on the Coast. Ghost on the Coast will arrive at Port St. Joe City Commons 6 p.m. ET Tuesday. The festivities will begin with the Costume Contest in City Commons adjacent to City Hall. There will be three age divisions, ages 0-3, 4-6 and 7-10 as well as divisions for Family or Group and Pets.

The top three in each division will receive prizes.

Trick or treating on Reid Ave., from First Street to State 71, will begin immediately after the Costume Contest when the fire whistle sounds.

Trick-or-treaters are urged to wait for the fire whistle. The city is accepting any donations of candy; drop off the donation at City Hall.


2. 'Haunted Trail’ at Dead Lakes Park. The Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School Class of 2018 Project Graduation will sponsor a “Haunted Trail” Friday and Saturday in Dead Lakes Park in Wewahitchka.
