Get in the spirit with Halloween events

YOU WON'T STAND A ghost of a chance in northwest Carroll this weekend, because holiday activities abound in our corner of the world.

Emmanuel (Baust) United Church of Christ is holding a community Halloween Party from 7: 30 p.m. to 9 p.m. tomorrow at the Parish Hall, 2950 Old Taneytown Road in Tyrone.

Among the activities is costume judging for all ages for the cutest, funniest and most representative of the holiday. Group awards also will be presented.

Also planned are games, crafts, stories, songs and refreshments.

Information: 410-848-0923.

Other activities mentioned here recently include:

The Taneytown Halloween parade forms on Middle Street at 6: 30 p.m. today and steps off at 7 p.m. The parade ends with a costume judging contest at the Carnival Grounds off Memorial Drive, where all participants will receive a treat.

New Windsor will start registration for its parade at 6 p.m. tomorrow, and steps off at 7 p.m. at the old middle school on Green Valley Road. The parade ends at the fire hall, with treats for all.

The Taneytown Jaycees' Haunted Barn is open for three more nights behind the Country Kitchen on East Baltimore Street. It will be open from 7: 30 p.m. to 9 p.m. today and 8 p.m. until no one is in line Friday and Saturday.

Let's dance

If you're in the mood for a more mature holiday event, Francis Scott Key Junior Eagles Football will hold a dance at 9 p.m. Saturday. The program also is sponsoring a dance next month for the players and cheerleaders as a reward for their participation in the group's canned food drive.
