Scary Fun — 10/20/22

Time for costumes, snack-sized chocolate bars and screenings of Rocky Horror Picture Show. We’ve got all the Halloween events, from the trunk-or-treats for the kids to the parties and costume contests for adults. Plus, reporter Katelyn Sahagian tries her hand at dishing out scares at a haunted attraction. Find two weekends of Halloween events in our guide to the spookiest season.

Also on the cover: We are also at the start of craft fair season. In the Arts section this week, find the details about this weekend’s Great New England Fall Fine Craft and Artisan Show (on page 20) as well as a quick rundown of other area craft fairs (on page 21). Taste the competing chilis at the Great Bowls of Fire Chili Cook-Off in Goffstown on Saturday (page 32). And if you’re looking for some music, we can help you plan your weekend with the Music This Week listing, which starts on page 43.
