The wind is howling and the crisp air smells like fall, the familiar mix of leaves and distant fires burning. The evening sky takes on a mildly eerie dusk-hue, and carved pumpkins line neighborhood front lawns. Halloween is almost here bringing with it plenty of ‘haunted happenings’ cape-wide! Who doesn’t love a good fright to get the adrenaline pumping? There are all sorts of spooky goings-on from Falmouth to Provincetown; a few for adults but the majority are family oriented for all ages. Pull out your costumes and celebrate Halloween Cape Cod style! Happy Halloween…BOO!
