Haunted Harbor event set for Friday at Brownsville Marina

The fifth annual Haunted Harbor, a Halloween-themed event, will take place Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Brownsville Marina. The event is to benefit the Bremerton Foodline and the Brownsville Yacht Club.

The event will feature trick or treating for kids, as well as several dozen decorated boats and special effects on display. Organizers say the event is “fun scary,” more along the lines of Casper the Friendly Ghost than terrifying vampires, according to a news release.

“This is our fifth year for this unique event, and it promises to be the biggest and best one yet,” Haunted Harbor Committee member Carolyn Thomas said.

“Besides trick or treating our yacht club’s fantastically decorated boats, the Navy Yacht Club from

Everett is bringing 15 more boats down to join us,” Haunted Harbor Co-Chair Sally Hass said.

The Anubis Hearse Club will also be on hand to display their spooky-themed vehicles and give away treats, Thomas said.

“Admission is free, but we urge you to bring a food or cash donation for Bremerton Foodline,” committee member Terry Asla said. “Last year, we collected some 300 pounds of food along with a generous amount of cash.”

In addition to making your donation the night of the event, you can also drop off a food donation at East Bremerton West Marine, Bad Blanche in downtown Poulsbo and the Paula Weissinger Insurance Agency on Bainbridge Island, Asla said.

Yacht club volunteers will be on-site to help fit small children with life vests and serve hot cocoa and cider.

The safety captain is Capt. John Morrison, who captained both the Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain tall ships. Morrison also served as a safety captain for the making of “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World,” the 2003 movie starring Russell Crowe.
