Halloween Happenings

Spooky Town
    Kids 7 to 12 can build an edible Halloween spooky town at the East Hampton Library today from 4 to 5 p.m. “Witches brew” will be served. On Monday, children 7 to 10 can create their own Halloween-themed dessert, Creepy Crawler Worms in Dirt, from 4 to 5 p.m. Advance registration has been requested for each program.

Freaky Friday
    Little ghosts and goblins can jump their hearts out in an outdoor bouncy castle, trick-or-treat, and even get a glitter tattoo during the Children’s Museum of the East End’s Halloween party tomorrow from 4 to 6 p.m. in Bridgehampton.

    There will be plenty of tricks and treats, as well as bat and ghost craft stations led by the East Hampton Day Care Learning Center, and cupcake decorating, too. Prizes will be awarded for best costumes. The party is geared toward children 6 and under, but there will be fun for older siblings, too. Admission is $18. Members get in free.

“Follies” in Sag
    “The Frankenstein Follies” musical revue, presented by Stages, a Children’s Theater Workshop, will bring a cast of 39 young actors to the Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor tomorrow and Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. A party follows each performance and will feature face painting, a tattoo parlor, a fortune-teller, and a “terrifyingly tasty treat bar.”

    Tickets cost $15; proceeds will support a Stages scholarship program. Seating is limited, and tickets can be purchased at the theater’s box office.

Boo in Bridgehampton
    Children of all ages have been invited to dress up and go trick-or-treating after a Halloween story time at the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton on Saturday at 10 a.m. The costumed brigade will march down Main Street, ending at about 11:30 a.m.

Bags for Treats
    To prepare for all the loot they’re likely to get on Wednesday, children may want to attend a Halloween story and craft time on Saturday afternoon at 3:30 at the Amagansett Library. The craft? A trick-or-treat or costume carry bag.

    Looking ahead to Friday, Nov. 2, kindergartners through sixth graders have been invited to find a monster lurking somewhere in the library. Kids will work in small groups to look up clues that will lead them through the shelves — and the Dewey Decimal System — starting at 3:30 p.m. Once they locate the monster, they’ll receive a monster detective badge.

    Advance reservations have been requested for both programs.

Ragamuffin Sagamuffin
    Kids who want to give their costumes a test run in Sag Harbor before the big Ragamuffin Parade on Sunday can stop in at the John Jermain Memorial Library’s costume party on Saturday from 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. There will be snacks and party games for those who register in advance.

    Costumed revelers young and old will march down Sag Harbor’s Main Street on Sunday during the annual Ragamuffin Parade sponsored by the village’s chamber of commerce. Marchers will convene in the municipal parking lot behind BookHampton at 1 p.m. and conclude their walk at the Custom House, where sandwiches, cider, and doughnuts will be sold. The chamber of commerce will donate the proceeds to the Sag Harbor Food Pantry.

    Before and during the festivities, the Haunted Wailing Museum at the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum will offer special tours for children under 12 between noon and 3 p.m. The cost is $5. Children must be accompanied by adults.

    Sag Harbor merchants participating in the chamber’s pumpkin trail after school on Wednesday will display orange pumpkin faces in their windows.

Pumpkin Decorating
    Kids 6 and older can get really creative with their jack-o’-lanterns during a pumpkin-decorating workshop at Guild Hall in East Hampton on Saturday at 11 a.m. Only 20 spots are available and advance registration is a must. The cost is $12, $10 for members.

Halloween at L.V.I.S.
    There will be singing, dancing, storytelling, and a scavenger hunt at the East Hampton Ladies Village Improvement Society’s Halloween party for the little ones on Saturday. The ladies have invited prekindergartners through first graders to join in the fun from 2 to 4 p.m. at their headquarters on Main Street. Each child has been promised a goodie bag and treats.

Spooky Tales for Young’uns
    The East Hampton Historical Society has invited parents and children from kindergartners up to second graders to Clinton Academy on Main Street on Monday to listen to spooky tales and enjoy some cider and doughnuts. Children can wear Halloween costumes if they wish. The fun begins at 6:30 p.m.

    Bridgehampton School kindergartners through fifth graders will parade through the hamlet starting at 12:15 p.m. on Wednesday. Kids will visit a Halloween greenhouse afterward, and then gather in the gym for a costume contest. Prizes will be given for fanciest, most scary, silliest, best homemade, best storybook character, best boy’s costume, best girl’s costume, best teacher’s costume, and best costume by a parent.

Montauk Monsters
    In Montauk on Wednesday, the main drag will be closed briefly starting at 4 p.m. as Montauk School students march in costume from the Corner Store to the east end of town. The Montauk PTA has organized the promenade.
