What do YOU plan to do Halloween night?  Each year Halloween becomes a bigger and bigger event in Statesboro.  With the increased excitement the number of celebratory events has grown.  As a ‘boro child the only event I recall  was the Haunted Forest on the GSU campus.  Brian confirms my recollection. Comparatively, the current list is long.  More, it is inclusive of a range of tastes and preferences. 

What makes people want to celebrate Halloween? There is definitely a magical allure of the holiday.  A hazy aura with the sound of wolves howling, the vision of clouds slinking in front of the moon, and the smell of a musky coffin just unearthed.  It’s spooky. It’s candy-cornish. And, it is down right freaky.  It’s fun and it is a deliverance from normal activity.  It’s the costumes, the parties, the nostalgia for childhood, the opportunity to shed inhibitions and become someone else for the evening, or to be somewhere else in a magical never land.  Regardless of your reason or your tastes, I have collected a list of Statesboro Halloween events to keep you and your little goblins busy. 

There is not a BAT-tle for things to do this year.  There are copious spook-tacular activities to keep your calender full.  So, grab your brooms. It’s time to fly by the moon.
