Halloween When I Was A Kid

With Halloween just around the corner, I was thinking back to when I was a kid. I always thought it was a fun day but there was not much to it. It was a mid-level holiday. Basically, it consisted of only a couple of activities.

Halloween Is Stepping Up Its Game

I believe Halloween is now taken its game to the next level. It is a top-tier holiday. Some might even say it is second to Christmas. No matter, there is so much more going on these days.

New Favorite Halloween Event


According to timeout.com,

"Outfit a "casket" (or a casket-shaped cart with wheels) in your favorite decor for this spooky annual race through the streets of downtown Forest Park."

 

"The rules are simple: A helmet-clad "ghost" rides inside the casket, while runners push the contraption as fast as they can along a 585-foot course."

 

"Prizes will be awarded for casket decorations as well as for the winners of the race, but try not to worry too much if you're not particularly athletic—there's also a prize for the "dead last" final finisher."
