PORT ORCHARD — Saturday afternoon on Bay Street will be a great time to get your freak on, ghoulishly speaking.
The Bay Street Boo Bash, sponsored by the Port Orchard Bay Street Association, will haunt downtown from 1-5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27. The afternoon will include an opportunity for little ghouls and goblins to get their photos taken with a witch, and participate in a scavenger hunt at the Sidney Museum and Art Gallery, also from 1-5 p.m.
The downtown scarecrow contest, which started Oct. 13, will display entries at the public market all day.
A costume parade will take place beginning 2:30 p.m. at Gravely Park. Prior to the parade, costume contest judging will start at that location 30 minutes beforehand. Awards will be presented at Port Orchard Public Market at 3 p.m.
Your costumed pets can also get in the act with a pet parade at 4:45 p.m. Costume judging starts at 4:30 p.m., with awards presented at the market at 5 p.m.
But the prime event of the afternoon for kids is the chance to trick or treat along Bay Street from 3-5 p.m.
