It’s Spooky Season, a season filled with all things ghosts, goblins, spirits, and haunts. But the truth is, there are creepy things right here in our own backyard year-round. Haunted Augusta? Yes, the city and surrounding areas have many stories and experiences!
What is Spooky Season? It’s that time between Summer break and the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. The weather (usually) starts to cool down. The days get shorter. And the Fall decor starts to show up!
For some, Spooky Season can start in September. Of course, this is when Fall officially starts. And it’s often when the Halloween stores start popping up.
You might start enjoying Fall-themed fun, like checking out the local corn maze and pumpkin patch and decorating for Fall. And even if you don’t start in September, by October, Spooky Season is usually in full effect.
October is full of fun events – both non-spooky and downright terrifying! There are bonfires, pumpkin carving, scary movies, Halloween treats, costumes, and haunted houses. Granted, not everyone loves the Halloween season. But there’s still many who do get into the spirit!
