Halloween is coming and even if it rarely drops below 60 degrees in Florida, fans still want to be chilled for the holiday!
If you’re in the Ocala Florida area, be sure to check out the Florida Haunters Pre-Season Halloween Social, which takes place at the Marion-Dunn Masonic Lodge No. 19 this Saturday, August 20 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. At this haunter-hosted event, you’ll have the chance to learn decorating tips and tricks from a range of experts including Dr. Bill Ramsay, otherwise known as Dr. TerrorEyes.
This family-friendly event will include a variety of “make and take” crafting classes, as well as instructional talks about distressing costumes and protecting your Halloween props. Throw in door prizes from a variety of sponsors (including us), a Halloween prop swap, and the chance to meet local Halloween fans and, well...we wish we lived closer to Florida so we could go, too!
