Sweet kind of scary
Spookytown, the trick-or-treat event designed for children ages 5 and younger, returns to Cold Spring on Tuesday, Oct. 31, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at Chestnut Ridge. From 4 to 7 p.m., the Putnam History Museum, at 63 Chestnut St. will host a free party with apple cider, snacks and games.
Fourth-graders in Girl Scout Troop 2032, along with Manitou School students, created decorations that will adorn the neighborhood.
Spookytown was founded in 2016 by a group of residents led by musician Dar Williams to provide an alternative to young children who might be frightened of the sights and sounds of Parrott Street.
