Plan ahead for parking and mark your calendars, as Globe decks out in its finest spooky couture for an evening of family fun planned for Halloween, Wednesday, Oct. 31. Events are free.
Downtown Globe comes alive (or, more accurately, will be invaded by the Walking Dead) and hosts a crowd that can number 5,000 for an evening of trick-or-treating down historic Broad Street, starting at the Train Depot and continuing all the way to Yuma Street. Food vendors are set up by 4 p.m., which is also start time for the Haunted Jail and kid-friendly kickoff to the festivities. Not just for kids, though, events continue 5:30-7 p.m. with live music, a car show along the route, block party at the Train Depot, and a social media costume contest booth.
