NORTH TONAWANDA – It will treats rather than tricks in North Tonawanda with two separate weekend hauntings planned with families in mind on Oct. 16 and 17.
The Herschell Carrousel Museum, 180 Thompson St., will offer its annual Halloween Spooktacular from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Oct. 16. Families are encouraged to come in their favorite costumes at the “spook-free” party that is great for even the youngest members for the family.
Tickets are $6 per person and include games, crafts, snacks and carousel rides. At 7 p.m. there will be a visit from the Buffalo Zoomobile.
On Oct. 17, the Tonawanda and North Tonawanda Youth and Recreation departments, along with the T-NT Gateway Committee will hold their annual Haunted Harbor from 6 to 8 p.m. in Gateway Harbor Park. The event is free and open to all.
Friendly characters and costumed staff will walk through the park and both children and parents are invited to dress up and join in the fun. Children may also trick or treat around the harbor with participating boat owners in the harbor and trick or treat stations. There will be games and activities, as well as a haunted house on the City of Tonawanda side of the harbor.
