It’s almost that time of year again where spooky pumpkins align doorsteps, candy is considered a full course meal and everyone is seemingly dressed up as a vampire or a zombie! Halloween is a favorite time of year for many and PCB is the perfect place to “creep it real” while you celebrate with your friends and family!

Starting on October’s Friday the 13th, the annual Jaycee’s Haunted House will be open to the public at 7pm and will continue to spook the socks off of visitors on certain days of the week during the remainder of the month!

Families can start spending some quality "spooktacular" time together all throughout the month of October at Gulf World at their "Witches Wednesday" event each week, where they can enjoy face painting, watch the sea lions attend ghost buster school and travel through the spooky gardens and halls!

If you are looking for a spot to take the kids for some great trick-or-treating on Halloween night, check out Mall-o-Ween at Pier Park, where children ages 12 and under can have a store to store safe experience and fill their bags with some yummy candy!

If the kiddos can’t wait to get into their costumes and have some Halloween fun, head over to ZooBoo on October 28th and 29th at Zoo World where they will be having a costume contest, games and prizes while you trick-or-treat with the animals!

Want to have an early celebration of your own with some friends? Join hundreds of others who will be having a “fang-tastic” time at the 3rd Annual Brew ‘n’ Boo Halloween Beer Festival at Pier Park on October 28th, where you can sample of dozens of beers from local and national breweries while enjoying live music!

Don’t worry, the fun doesn’t have to stop there. After you’ve tasted all of the crafty “boos” head over to the Toys for Kids Annual Halloween Bash at Spinnaker Beach Club, where you can dance the night away and have a chance to win their costume contest that has over $2,500.00 in cash and other prizes this year!
