Happy October! It is hard to believe that Halloween is just around the corner. Little ghosts and goblins running around dressed in their costumes. What sounds more perfect than loading the family up for a weekend away. Dress them up in their costumes and take them trick-or-treating all while hitting the beach during the day! Here are a few events we have coming up this year around town.
OWA is having a few Halloween events of their own this year. They will be having Nightmare Chambers which will be going on every night in October! Tickets start at $19.99 for this event and can be purchased here. October 29th, OWA will be hosting their annual Monster Bash Costume Contest! There will be cash prizes for 1st-3rd place as well as overall prizes. This event is open for ages 0-18+ and you can even compete as a team! On Saturdays in October, kids will be able to trick-or-treat as downtown OWA is turned into Halloweentown! The night is finished off with a halloween themed music and light show. For the spooky pawrents that want to participate we have a Howl-o-ween dog costume contest on October 22. There are over $450 in cash prizes that they have to give away! You can register online or in person. For something a little more low key come check out Halloween Movie Nights. Each Saturday in October they will be presenting classic horror movies. Tickets are $5 a piece or 4 for $15 with code 4PACK.
