Haunted houses and balls
"The Haunted Tale of Red Eyes," presented by the Fishtown Horribles Parade Committee and Cape Ann YMCA, at Camp Spindrift, 67 Atlantic Ave., in West Gloucester, takes place tonight and tomorrow from 5 to 10 p.m. On Halloween, Saturday, the event will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. Hear the tale of Flying Eagle, the Indian chief of the Spindrift Tribe, and relive the horror that took place many moons ago. Hop aboard a train that will take you deep into the woods, and take a stroll through the haunted camp before walking through the never ending maze. The program for young children will take place from 5 to 6:30 p.m., and the program for older children and adults will begin at 7 p.m. Hot dogs, beverages and other Halloween treats will be available. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 children.
Costume party: Tomorrow, members and guests of Cape Ann Lodge 1471 Loyal Order of Moose are invited to a Halloween costume party at the new lodge. The evening begins at 6 p.m., and will include a DJ, door prize, raffles and trivia. For information, call 978-290-6974.
The Castle Of The Damned!: Hammond Castle will once again serve as the atmospheric backdrop for the PG-13-rated Castle Of The Damned. Guests will take a guided tour through the historic castle and its grounds, and bear witness to nightmarish displays inspired by the works of author H.P. Lovecraft, Italian horror maestro Dario Argento, and Pastimes' own Dean Calusdian, director of the independent horror film "Tortured Hearts."
