Haunts & Soirées of Mobile Halloween 2017

by Tim Borland

Halloween is rapidly approaching and their are a slew of activities all around the Port City waiting to be explored. There have already been many October themed events, such as yesterday’s Camellia Bay Boo-lesque performance at Alchemy Tavern, but not to fear! Whether a Mobilian is interested in food, music, or drinks, there are events for almost everyone to enjoy in the next week and a half.

            In addition to having a blast – and an excuse to don a costume – guests to these events can feel positive about their dollars supporting independent businesses. This support helps to keep Mobile fun and interesting, so residents can continue to have lots of entertainment options every year. Below are some suggestions for the smaller or more underground events that some Mobilians might not have heard about yet.
