Your guide to all-things Halloween


We are days away from Halloween. Hope you have your costume ready. If you don't, that's OK -- we have these last-minute looks for you.

Or maybe, you're going to let the kids do the dressing up this year and you'll stick to handing out candy. (Or drinking it.)

Check out this handy roundup for local trick-or-treat times.

Hosting a party? Here are a few ideas to make it fun and festive:

Wines with spooky names (that taste good, too)

Here's five we recommend. (Zombie Zinfandel and Broomstick Brew made the list.)

Pumpkin beer

We talked to local beer distributors and got a list of the season's best pumpkin brews you can buy for your guests. Whether you like porters, ales or stouts, there's something tasty for you and your guests on the list.

Halloween-themed cocktails

Learn how to make Poison Apple Martinis and Vampire's Kiss cocktails (we also tossed in a recipe for deviled brains - a great starter).

Pumpkin-flavored treats

We taste-tested eight pumpkin-flavored things you can get at a local grocery store and rated them. Find the list here. You're welcome.


Still need to spruce up your party space? Get inspired by the Halloween murals Dallastown Area High School students did in downtown York. See the photos here.

If you're looking for something that can stay up all season, here's a DIY guide to making a Indian corn wreath.

Totally hate the idea of Halloween? Here are some other things going on this weekend (Halloween spirit not required).
