Whether you’ve decorated your house with seasonal decor, you’re getting ready to carve pumpkins, or you’ve been planning your costume since last year, Halloween is a fun holiday the entire family can get involved in…even your pets! If you’re a Greater Morgantown local looking to hand out candy in your neighborhood or attend a party with a costume contest, we’ve created a must-have guide for all of your spooky needs! (You don’t have to go bobbing for apples to make plans this year, unless you want to of course!) Grab your friends, the kids and the rest of the family, and get ready to “out-scare” the rest!
