■ It’s party time. Excellent.

Outtabounds puts on its annual Halloween party from 9 p.m. Saturday to 2 a.m. Sunday under the grandstands at the Moffat County Fairgrounds.

Ryan Otis, also known as Subzero, will DJ the event. It’s BYOB, so take whatever you like to drink. P.S. You have to be at least 21.

Cover is $7 and the proceeds will be donated to Vicki Duncan, who is battling cancer.

Don’t forget your goriest costume for the contest.

■ Chow down and laugh it up.

The Craig Chamber of Commerce’s ninth annual Crabfest is Saturday night at the Boys & Girls Club of Craig, 1324 E. U.S. Highway 40.

It begins at 6:30 p.m. and includes a hypnotist comedian, a theatrical performance by Moffat County High School students and, of course, a scrumptious crab dinner.

It’s $50 a pop and so much fun. Get your tickets by

calling 824-5689.

■ Be afraid. Be very afraid.

American Legion Post 62 offers its haunted house again this weekend at Centennial Mall, 1111 W. Victory Way.

It’ll be open from 7 to 10 p.m. Thursday through Monday. It’s $6 a person.

Have questions? Call 824-5755.

■ Give me something good to eat.

It’s trick-or-treat time. It’s sure to be busy as usual downtown and at Centennial Mall as kids in costume invade from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday.

Businesses in the 400 and 500 blocks of Yampa Avenue, on Victory Way and at the mall, 1111 W. Victory Way, will load up bags with goodies.

During the same times, find free candy at Sandrock Ridge Care & Rehab, 943 W. Eighth Drive, and Pankey’s BBQ, 1740 E. U.S. Highway 40.

■ Friday is the deadline to submit a decorated bra or pair of boxers to The Flower Mine & Gift Shop’s annual fundraiser competition.

It’s $10 to enter your item, and then the public votes on its favorites.

Proceeds benefit the Moffat County Cancer Society.

Take your duds to The Flower Mine, 410 W. Victory Way, and call 824-7441 for contest details.

■ Visit an old friend and read her new book.

Pamela Hurd, who lived in Craig for 28 years, hosts a book signing for “Switch Witch” from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Museum of Northwest Colorado, 590 Yampa Ave.

■ West Theatre is getting in two new releases, “In Time” — starring one of my celebrity crushes, Justin Timberlake — and “Puss in Boots” with the sexy voice of Antonio Banderas.

New at Redbox this week are “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Winnie the Pooh,” some never-heard-of titles and a couple of horror flicks to celebrate the season.

I am so excited for this weekend/Monday! =D My friends and I have a great plan to do down town. What we don't like is that trick or treating is on Monday. We don't think Halloween it will be very effective this year due to that. It is a school night and parents may not agree to let their children out later than they usually would if trick or treating was on the weekend.

You forgot Demons. They're the ones Ghouls hang out with, because Demons are a Ghouls best friend!
