Halloween on Ocracoke kicks off with a parade of costumes around the school circle during the school's annual celebration. This photo was taken last week. Elementary students and teen-agers enjoyed dressing up for the day.
This year's celebration also included a hay ride and ghost stories (my daughter Amy, Heather Johnson, and I kept the children on the edge of their hay bales!), as well as games, horse rides, and a climbing wall. Trick or Treating will be Saturday, October 31.
To coincide with Halloween this year, today begins the annual Pirate Jamboree. This is always a rollicking good time for young and old. Hope to see you there. I am hoping to post photos of the 2015 Jamboree next week.
Update, 11/4/15: I am posting several more Ocracoke Halloween photos sent to me by Sally Beachy.
