Top 5 Reasons Why it’s So Scary to Miss Halloween Weekend at Put-in-Bay
Don’t get us wrong, we certainly look forward to ice fishing and cozying up to a good movie on a cold winter’s night, but something about this time of year is slightly more chilling than the ghosts and ghouls that come along with Halloween — It’s the fact that we have to wait until next year for another island season.
So what’s the best way to cope with this feeling of another year gone by? It’s simple. Gather your friends, dress up, catch the Miller Ferry and put an island in your life. Because if there’s one thing scarier than a good costume, it’s spending an entire winter knowing that you missed Halloween at Put-in-Bay. And in case you needed more incentive, let’s list the Top 5 Reasons Why It’s So Scary to Miss a Halloween at Put-in-Bay.
The Whiskey Light Turn Off Celebration — It may be cliche, but the old adage “ending on a good note” has a lot of truth. The iconic whiskey light that has shined so brightly in 2015 goes out for the last time this season amongst tunes from island favorite Ray Fogg during one of the best get-togethers of the year. Missing this? Frightening.
One-of-a-Kind Costumes — We can’t really put our finger on it and maybe it’s just that Put-in-Bay brings out the creativity in people, but some of the absolute best costumes show up on the streets of Delaware Ave (see our Costume Ideas blog post here). What’s your best costume idea?
Last Chance to Visit the Candy Bar — Not being able to taste their delicious chocolate fudge until 2016 sounds like a nightmare. Luckily for all you chocolate lovers out there, the Candy Bar is open for one last hurrah this weekend. Of course if you’re not a fan of cocoa, they have one of the biggest candy selections around.
The Round House’s Costume — Truly one of the best things about Halloween on Put-in-Bay is simply seeing what hilarious getup the venerable tavern dons this year. We definitely know it’s not going to be another Minion, although last year’s was terrific. Another giant spider perhaps? A gigantic pumpkin? The only way to know for sure is by seeing for yourself.
The World Class View Atop Perry’s Monument — It doesn’t matter if you’re a local who’s been 100 times or a visitor who’s grabbing their first experience, the view from the top never gets old. The memorial will be open Friday – Monday with the last ascent beginning at 5:30 pm.
