Heading into the holiday season, we have a big Halloween weekend lined up for all of you ghosts and goblins out there! We will kick it off with the “Party of the Damned”, which will be held at the Palmer Train Depot on Friday, October 27th from 7pm – 11pm. There will be live music, a costume contest, prizes, tricks and treats, adult games and more! You can pre-purchase your tickets online at Brown Paper Tickets for $35 per person prior to the event. Tickets will be sold at the door beginning at 6:30pm that evening for $50 per person. This event is for adults only (21 years or older) Purchase tickets online at the ticket URL: www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3112384.

The "Party of the Damned" event has been postponed until 2018. Sorry for the inconvience.

Another huge shopping event being held this month is the “Spook-tacular Shopping Event” on Saturday, October 28th from 10:30am - 5:30pm. Stop in and get ahead for the holidays! We will have another gift basket giveaway with goodies generously donated by the small businesses at the event! This shopping event will be unique in that the vendors will be dressing up in costume to add a bit of fun! There will be a gift wrapping station for your holiday purchases (for donation)! Families and pets are encouraged to stop by and trick or treat! Costumes are encouraged and we will have some door prizes! There will be face painting and a scary hair booth that you can come and get done up if you are going out to a party later that evening! 
Last but not least is the “Halloween Community Potluck & Scary Readings”, which takes place on Sunday, October 29th from 4:30pm - 7:30pm. We have enlisted a crew of community volunteers to help read more than a few unnerving Halloween-inspired tales from the stage. Invite your friends and family down to the event and have a hauntingly good time! The entry fee to the event is an ample potluck offering! The doors will creak open at 4:30pm, with the potluck dinner expected to be served by 5pm, followed by the scary readings. Creative Halloween-themed dishes are encouraged! Although not required, community members are encouraged to come in their favorite Halloween costume.
