"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
October 23rd, 2011
In eager anticipation of the sugar-loving world’s favorite holiday, I’ll be posting about some sweet upcoming Halloween celebrations. First up is the Spooktacular! If you’ve already assembled the perfect costume and are counting the hours to America’s favorite day of sugar-saturated spookiness, definitely stop by the Halloween Spooktacular next weekend in Litchfield, CT. The spine-tingling creation of a partnership between the Litchfield Historical Society and the White Memorial Conservation Center, Spooktacular promises to be both terrifying and tasty. Listen to well-known actors from the community read “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” by candlelight and then tour Gallows Lane, where America’s first mass murderer was hanged. The festivities aren’t all fearful, though. Visitors who make it to the end are fed delicious treats, which, let’s face it, is the whole point of Halloween. The event is hosted at the Tapping Reeve Law School on Rte. 63 South Street, starts at 6:30 p.m., and is totally free! Don that perfect costume and get over to Litchfield for a memorable celebration.
