GREAT FALLS — As Halloween gets closer, people are once again planning to get creative - working to come up with ideas for scary and/or fun costumes for kids and themselves, and preparing Halloween-themed events.
One sure sign that the holiday is approaching - the Spirit Halloween store recently opened in Great Falls, offering costumes of all kinds and items to decorate homes and lawns.
The store is open from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. every day except Sundays, when it is open from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.
It is at 301 Northwest Bypass, just like last year, in the building that used to be Shopko.
In years past, Spirit has leased space in a building along 10th Avenue South, and before that, in the plaza adjoining the Albertsons grocery store on the northwest side of town.
There is no word yet on what Halloween-themed activities (haunted houses, group events, downtown/mall trick-or-treating) are planned this year; we will update you if we get details on any events.
This year, Halloween falls on a Sunday.
