Haunted houses set to scare this weekend

Scares and tours in Port Townsend and Forks will continue through Halloween.

The leaves have turned to gold and red and the nights have grown chilly.

There’s only one more week until Halloween on the North Olympic Peninsula and the list of coming events is growing.

In addition to haunted houses designed to terrify, there are family-friendly events, too:

Halloween Harvest Party

PORT TOWNSEND — The Jefferson County ReCyclery will host its fourth annual Halloween Harvest Party from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. today.

The organization invites the public to the free party at 1925 Blaine St.

At 2 p.m., there will be cider pressing of fruits brought by attendees.

A potluck will follow at 5 p.m. and attendees are asked to bring a dish.

There will also be an outdoor spooky movie “The Triplets of Belleville” on chairs and blankets.

RSVP for the party by going to www.ptrecyclery.org.

The haunted house will continue Oct. 28-29.

Tickets are $10 at the door. All proceeds will benefit the Kiwanis, Elks Club and local school ASB clubs.
