What Makes for a Havre de Grace Halloween?

Tell us in the comments about your October haunts.

With Halloween approaching, we want to know how Havre de Grace gets in the spirit.

Do you have a special tradition like pumpkin picking? Where do you go?

If you're headed for a haunted house or hayride, which are the best? Which are the scariest?

In a city more than two centuries old, it's only natural there will be ghost stories. Have you noticed or heard of anything haunted in Havre de Grace?

I used to work at Bayside Antiques on the weekends. One winter evening - as I was closing the store - I had turned off the lights and was heading to the front when I heard a loud "ding". I was alone in the store so I just kept on walking and got out of there quickly. The next day I walked through the store trying to find out what exactly I had heard. I discovered that it was the sound of the bell from a wrestling ring that was laying on top of a trunk in the back of the store. The scary thing about this is - the bell was laying down on the trunk and could not be rung unless it was in an upright position!

Again at Bayside Antiques - I picked up a portrait of a woman wearing a long white gown and I placed it on a dresser - leaning it up against the mirror of the dresser. The following morning when I came into the store I noticed that the portrait was moved. After searching the store, I found the portrait behind the soda machine! I checked the alarm system and no one had entered the store since I had left the day before! Maybe "the lady in white" did not want her portrait sold.

On a more personal note: One evening-on a First Friday-I ran into a former neighbor from when we owned our house on Lafayette Street. This neighbor and my husband used to watch baseball and football together and our families quickly became friends. This neighbor stated that he saw my husband sitting on a bench in front of Jana's Java. He waved to Dave and Dave waved back and smiled. My neighbor tried to get across the street to talk to him but there were a lot of people in the street and by the time he got over to the coffee shop Dave was gone. You can imagine how both of us felt when I told my neighbor that Dave had passed away six months earlier!

The Annual Halloween Costume Parade on October 30th. The creativity of the people is amazing! It is a great way to connect and reconnect with neighbors, line dance with the crowd and kickoff the flurry of sessaonal events to come to Havre de Grace. You don't have to dress up to enjoy the evening and it is a "wallet-friendly" free event sponosored by the Havre de Grace Recreation Committee with support from the City of Havre de Grace and Parks & recreation.
