I've always been a Halloween person, and maybe it's something you're born with. You don't choose the spooky life, the spooky life chooses you— and it seems the spooky life has chosen many Missoulians. There's so much to love about Halloween that different people can love it for different reasons, so here's a breakdown of each type of super fan you'll find in Missoula, Montana:

The Witchy Ones

Witchy people love Halloween because that's when it's easiest to communicate with beings from the other realms... I'm not sure how they feel about candy corn.

Horror Movie Maniacs

Horror movies are fun to watch all year, but they have a particular appeal during the harvest season. The largest gathering of horror movie maniacs in Missoula is each month at The Roxy Theater for Trash Vault, an event where horror hostesses Charlotte Macorn and Solveig present a scary movie. On Friday, 10/28/22 at The Roxy it's the Trash Vault Mystery Spooktacular with a costume contest, prizes and more.

Pro-Tip: When selecting a costume, It would not be the worst of ideas to test the thing for practicality. Can you sit down or peel out of it for bathroom breaks? These things we did not consider to the great amusement of co-workers. It is another reason not to choose those big “Sweaters for Two”. You're welcome. B&C
