Door County is getting a head start on the Halloween celebrations this weekend starting with the United States Coast Guard’s Ghost Ship. For over 35 years, Coast Guard members have welcomed the community onto its barge to get spooked, share in some hot chocolate, and collect items for local food pantries. Petty Officer Aaron Ross says it is a great way for them to give back.
Ghost Ship tours start at 5:30 p.m. on Friday for a fright-free tour for small children followed by a “lights off” experience for older kids and adults beginning at 6:45 p.m. Sturgeon Bay and Fish Creek will host Halloween celebrations this weekend while Casco, Forestville, and Luxemburg host some of the first trick-or-treat hours of the season on Sunday. A full listing will be available at DoorCountyDailyNews.com.
