The Great Pumpkin

By Guy Chapman – Navarro County Gazette

Yes We Can

Oh that’s right: Halloween’s this month, isn’t it? In my busy schedule, I seem to have forgotten how fast the last few weeks have passed.

This year is set to be a more traditional Halloween season. There’s already events lining up, such as some of the local businesses doing “Trunk ‘r Treats,” and a “Haunted Hayride,” which I’ll be sharing over the next few weeks. Hopefully, the festivities will run longer this year. I think last year underestimated how much people wanted to get out and participate in the holiday season. Go past sundown. Have fun with it.

We’re finally getting cooler weather to compliment the season. I spent the early hours of the morning wrapped in a blanket while drinking coffee, while realizing I’m already running behind on my own setup. I’ve made a point to hit a Spirit Halloween store and the aisles of Target to make with the spooky time. I still need to get more candy. I’m behind on my monster movie watching (though I did see the new Halloween movie this weekend – Not bad, not quite 2018’s offering). I did buy a pumpkin this year, so I am, at the very least, somewhat up on my game.

Now that we’re into the second half of October, the Gazette is going to be working on a few specialty articles, including upcoming October events, Halloween safety tips, monster movies good for the whole family, and share some haunted Texas history while we’re at it. We have another feature planned this week for sharing community Halloween decorations, though regarding the last week of October, we have one last space to showcase. To quote Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion ride: “There’s always room for one more. Any volunteers?”

For those running Halloween events that you would like to share with the community, drop us a line at: news@navarrocountygazette.com – We would be glad to highlight your event.

As for me, I need to unbox my decorations and get them out in the yard. The neighbors are making my yard look empty….
