Who’s ready to party?
We have two main places for you to get your Halloween events listings this year, for this weekend all the way through the actual holiday:
- Halloween-Themed Events in the Upper Valley Through Oct. 31 — A listing of low-cost public events hosted by municipalities, non-profits and the like for all ages.
- Highlights: Halloween Brings Out the Bands, and the Costumes — Geared more toward adults and includes events at bars, restaurants and other private enterprises.
