Because Halloween falls midweek this year, much of the North Olympic Peninsula got a head start on headlessness and other spookiness Friday and Saturday.
More activities are planned today.
And on Halloween — which is Wednesday — there will be more events — plus trick-or-treating in downtown Port Angeles, Sequim and Port Townsend.

The cornfield maze is $5 for youths ages 12 and younger, $10 for ages 13 and older.
