The Rundown: Halloween in Pennsport

Welp Pennsport, it's that time of year again -- Halloween is here. Time to change over your bay windows from your Columbus Day decorations and First Holy Communion ribbons to spiders, goblins and Jack-O-Lanterns.

Who am I kidding? By the looks of it, you've been ready for weeks.

Here are a few Halloween things going on around the 'hood to get you in the spooky spirit.

Been Booed:
You may have noticed little signs posted on your neighbor's windows or doors that read "We've Been Boo-ed." It's a fun way to get people in the Halloween spirit. Print out the signs and create a trick or treat for an unsuspecting neighbor. Leave the paper explaining they've "Been Boo-ed" and they pass it on. This is especially fun if you or your neighbor's have kids that will get all hopped up on the candy you give them and run a muck inside their house -- it's the Halloween way! Hate chain letters but love alcohol, try "Been Boo-zed!"

Beetlejuice in the Park:
This Friday, October 25th, there will be a special Halloween edition of KIDZ NITE featuring an outdoor screening of Beetlejuice at Jefferson Square Park starting at 6:30pm. There will be all kinds of goodies and they will be making s'mores. I repeat -- they will be making S'MORES. I will however, not repeat "Beetlejuice" three times fast. It's nothing personal, Michael Keaton, really, it isn't. I loved you in Dream Team.

Dickinson Square Park Halloween Party:
Come on out to good old DSP this Sunday for an afternoon of family Halloween celebration. The party runs from 3pm to 5pm and will feature a costume parade -- so bust out your best because there will be prizes for ALL AGES. There will also be treats, games and crafts for the kids.

Side note: Your help is crucial to the success of this event. If you can lend a hand in any way, please attend the meeting on 10/24 at 6pm in the park for more information. Can't make the meeting? Hit up their Facebook group page or contact or shoot an email to

2nd Street Brew House 3rd Annual Halloween Party:
So, you've "Been Boo-ed", S'more'd up at Jefferson Square Park with Michael Keaton, and won Best Costume at the Dickinson Square Park Halloween Party -- suffice to say, it's been an awesome Halloween for you.

Hold your Hellhounds, November 2nd is the 3rd Annual Halloween Party at 2nd Street Brew House from 12pm to 12am. Guerilla Ultima will be slingin' all kinds of goodness and the cool people at 2SBH will be handing out cash prizes for the best costumes. Top it off with a host of great pumpkin beer on tap (plus their already amazing tap list) and you've got yourself a nice little Saturday planned.
