Happy Halloween Everyone!
Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year here on Martha’s Vineyard. The fall foliage is in full swing, there’s a crispness in the air, the derby craziness is over, and the entire island gets into the Halloween Spirit. Towns have a special day dedicated to trick-or-treating for the younger children, businesses participate in the annual scarecrow competitions, and the event venues put on halloween costume parties every year.
One of the biggest events around is the annual Halloween Party at the Lampost. Every year a 70’s/80’s disco cover band called, The Boogies, plays well into the night. During their set break is the annual costume contest. If you’re interested in seeing the band play, grab a costume and get on down to the Lampost on Circuit Ave, Thursday October 31st, at 10:00 pm.
Perhaps you’ve made plans, or you’re unable to attend The Boogies. That’s okay because on Wednesday, october 30th, you can join the annual zombie crawl! The latest Halloween craze to sweep the nation has made its way to Martha’s Vineyard. Now in its second year, the zombie crawl meets at 8pm at the Tabernacle and makes its way throughout downtown Oak Bluffs, making stops along the way to grab a bite. Don’t worry, they only eat food, not actual humans.
