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

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