Logan’s downtown merchants will get the Halloween season started early with the first-ever Historic Downtown Ghost Tour the next two weekends, Friday and Saturday nights.
Gary Saxton of the Logan Downtown Alliance said the event is called “Nightmare on Main.”
“This is a guided tour. We will put you in groups and we’ll guide you to some very spooky places in historic downtown Logan. We won’t reveal where those sites are. It’s a family event but we’re cautioning parents about bringing small children.
“It’s an 80-minute tour, the first one starts at 7:00, and the others will follow every 20 minutes. The last tour starts at 9:00.”
“Nightmare on Main” will run this Friday and Saturday and also the following weekend (Oct. 26-27). Cost is $7 with an additional $1 off with a donation of one or more non-perishable food items in support of the Cache Community Food Pantry.
“There is another $1 discount for those who “like” us on Facebook at logandowntown. Also group discounts are available ($50 for a group of 10) and that allows your group to stay together.”
Another anticipated downtown event is the Ninth Annual Logan Downtown Halloween Treat Walk, Wednesday, Oct. 31. Children and parents are encouraged to come downtown in their costumes and Trick or Treat door-to-door at participating businesses.
“Businesses will be open normal hours, just look for Halloween Treat Walk posters in their doors or windows.”
There are more events, including the “Zombie Walk”, Friday of this week, 6-7 p.m.
“This the second year for this event, another important event because again we collect food for the Community Food Pantry. You get to dress up as Zombies; people who are into that know exactly what it is all about. It starts at 200 North and Main.
“The next day, Saturday, we’re showing a Halloween film, “Circus Dreams” for the entire family at the Dansante Building. It’s free, it starts at 2 p.m. We will give away $100 to the best-dressed clown.”
Later Saturday, with two showings at 5:00 and 7:00 at the Dansante Building Theatre, is the premiere of an “extreme” film on ski and snowboarding produced by Teton Gravity Research.
