Lowdown for Tuesday, Oct. 31
Here’s Everything Happening in Humboldt on Official Halloween
Sorry, goblins and ghouls, actual Halloween falls on a Tuesday this year — out of LoCO’s control! — but in the event you’ve still got your costume on from Saturday (AKA honorary Halloween) night you might maybe wanna scroll your Lowdown anyway for hints as to where your fellow creeps may be lurking this All Hallow’s Eve.
Good luck. Be not-too-dumb. Don’t end up on the Nov. 1 edition of BOOKED.
Trick-or-Treat Downtown Arcata!
