Haunted House

Happy Halloween to all of you searchers out there! I’m sure you’re all busy with last minute costume fixes and making sure you’ve stocked up on goodies for all of those trick or treaters. Since Halloween falls on a Friday this year, it’s bound to be a real celebration, and the whole weekend should be filled with lots of fun events for the whole family.

So why not search today for those local events that might be happening in your area? And while you’re at it, see if you can find the 8 “BOO”s I’ve hidden inside this blog!

It’s Easy To Find Out What’s Happening In Your NeighBOrhOod!

Just type in “Local Events” and you may be amazed at what pops up! You’ll find pumpkin patches, corn mazes, hayrides, fall festivals and more! And if you’re concerned about safe trick or treating for the kids, there are lots of community events set up where they give out candy and prizes for the Best cOstumes and have plenty Of fun activities.


You’ll Find A BOunty Of Fall Harvest Activities!

It’s also a fun time of year to visit pick-your-own farms and orchards for fresh apples, pumpkins, gourds and more. Hey, why not search the word “Pumpkin”? You’ll find out how to choose a good one, how to carve one, the different varieties, recipes for pumpkin pie, and even how to grow a pumpkin! There are lots of Fall Festivals, too, where you can savor the local delicacies, find handcrafted gifts and take in some rides with the kids!

 Haunted Houses

If you love a good scare, you’ll find plenty of haunted houses that open up this time of year, complete with goblins and ghouls and special sound effects designed to frighten even the bravest souls out there! And with names like BlOOd Manor, The Barn of TerrOr and HOuse of Horrors, how can you go wrong?

Or Visit The Real Thing!

It doesn’t take long to find a list of the Top 10 Scariest Places In The U.S. These places are steeped in legend and real history, including abandoned asylums, old mansions, historic battlegrounds, plantations and more. You’ll find plenty of places that give guided tours, too – including guided ghost tours! These are gaining in popularity around the country and are a great way to see some old historic buildings and creepy locations with an expert guide.


Search now, put it on your calendar for next year, and BOOk the trip early. I found some spooky locations you can visit (be sure to bring someone else along!) A few on the list are Salem, Massachusetts (site of the infamous witch trials) … Sleepy Hollow in New York (remember the Headless Horseman?) … plus The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado (made famous by The Shining movie).

As you can see, there’s no lack of things to do for Halloween. You just have to know where to look. Why not BOOst your knowledge by using PCHSearch&Win? It’s a no brainer! Just log in, and with your first search of the day you’ll be automatically entered to win the PCH SuperPrize! Do it every day for more chances to win!
