The INDY's guide to Halloween



"Misquoth the Raven"

In this paper you are holding, something ghastly is unfolding,
graveyard plots, macabre shops and local horror on the screen—
Glenn McDonald tries ghost-busting; our Zack Smith needs time adjusting
to a store that's très disgusting (and surveys the spook house scene).
Colin Warren-Hicks intones a haunting tale of Durm cuisine—
think Four Square in X-Files green.

Tina Haver Currin whispers of a yearly Oakwood fixture
where a resident gets loco with his children-scaring theme.
And when Tina goes to visit a corn maze a most exquisite,
quite surprising proposition shakes her—will she swoon or scream?
You can see our blog for that and other eerie little things.
Don't be scared—it's all a dream.

But if you would rather party or do something kind of arty
than confront the paranormal we've got that for which you fiend—
Eric Tullis has the story of a Monsters Ball that's gory
when the dance floor goes for glory in a costumed bash (no jeans),
plus Fred Wasser hands out sundry tricks and treats and that could mean
one thing only: Halloween.

See below for the contents of our Halloween special, and look in the paper for "Where We'll Be" and calendar spotlights of more Halloween events.
