HALLOW-SCREAM!!

Saturday downtown will be a frightening scene

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.

Other “terrifying” events during the haunted Saturday:

  • Ghost Train at South Kitsap Regional Park, featuring the Kitsap Live Steamers. The event is sponsored by that organization and the Kitsap Foster Care Association. Tickets are $5.
  • Haunted Library at the Port Orchard Library, 7-9 p.m. Creepy creatures and “moderately morbid” monsters are promised during “tentatively terrifying tours.”
  • Haunted Cinema at the Dragonfly Cinema, 7-9 p.m. Admission is $5 with a can of perishable food for South Kitsap Helpline, $8 without a food item. It’s advertised as being “all about classic movie monsters.”
  • Port Orchard Zombie and Halloween Brew Crawl, 7-9 p.m. Check-in begins at 6:30 p.m. and the crawl starts at 7 p.m. Choose your starting point: Slaughter County Brewery, Sidelines Sports Bar, Dock Bar & Eatery, Brick House Bar & Grill or Nauti Mermaid. $35.
  • Zombie Beauty Contest at Slaughter County Brewing after the Zombie Crawl.
  • “Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show” production, 7:30 p.m. at Western Washington Center for the Arts. $15-18.
