What else is there to do in the community besides trick-or-treating and costume parties on Halloween night?
Here are six things that are sure to help you embrace the spookiest night of the year.

3. Online Photo Contest (Redwater)
Whether it's a decorated pumpkin or a pet costume, the town of Redwater is looking for photos that show off your Halloween spirit. All photos are entered for a draw with a mysterious prize. Today is the last day for entries. You can visit their website for more information.
