"Spooky City" Contest: Will you take home the prize?

One thing that grabbed my attention yesterday was that among the several great new entries we received yesterday, very few of them were about Halloween. Is this a difficult topic to write about? I submit that it is not. If it is, any ideas you do have will be that much more competitive.

Remember that you will be considered for the contest by adding a new entry related to Halloween with an appropriate definition to any city on
City Dictionary. Relevant Halloween entries include, but are not limited to, the following examples:
  • Halloween events of local cultural value
  • Local slang terms involving Halloween
  • Places in town with notorious paranormal activity
  • Noteworthy haunted houses, corn mazes, et al
  • Local Halloween traditions
  • Famous local Halloween pranks
  • Well-known newsworthy stories connected to Halloween
  • Local businesses that contribute to the local Halloween culture
  • Local landmarks that gets people in the Halloween spirit
  • Anything that defines Halloween for your city. Be creative!
I'm sure you can think of several examples of these for your town. You are allowed multiple entries for the contest, so feel free to write on any number of topics to improve your chances.
