It’s hard to believe, but Halloween is right around the corner. Don’t forget that Gavan’s Hotel will be hosting the annual costume party this Saturday, with prizes being offered up for the best costumes. DJ Dave will be keeping everyone up dancing. It’s always a great night of fun.
Hoping all of the kids have a great time putting together their Halloween costumes, and enjoying the spooky fun that I’m sure will be in store for them over the next week. Have a safe and happy Halloween!
