It's that time of year again, where pumpkins, ghosts and cobwebs reign supreme. There are several autumn-themed, and sometimes spooky, activities planned that will keep you in the spirit of the season.

■ Prepare to be scared as American Legion Post 62 offers its haunted house beginning this weekend at Centennial Mall, 1111 W. Victory Way.

It'll be open from 7 to 10 p.m. Thursday through Sunday and Oct. 27 to 30 and from 7 to 11 p.m. Oct. 31.

Call 824-3511 to find out more.

■ You say Pumpkin Patch, and I instantly think Charlie Brown.

And while Charlie Brown may not be a part of the Wyman Museum's third annual Pumpkin Patch event, Cinderella will be there.

The event, scheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, also includes pumpkins, of course; a scarecrow-making station; wagon, helicopter and camel rides; a hay maze; and a pumpkin pie contest.

The event is free to attend.

■ Put your artistic skills to the test during a pumpkin painting contest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Centennial Mall, 1111 W. Victory Way.

Hayden's Rebekah Lodge No. 75 hosts the event. Pumpkins cost $2 each, and entries will be judged in various age categories.

The show begins at dark and continues to 9 p.m. every night from Friday to Oct. 31 at the shop, 565 Yampa Ave.

■ Auctions are awesome. That's my take anyway.

Check out this antique and collectibles auction put on by The Journey at First Baptist at 5 p.m. Saturday at the church, 1150 W. Ninth St.

The sale includes everything from antique furniture to a fur coat to jewelry. There's also a soup and pie supper to keep you happy.

Proceeds will benefit the church's new nursery, so it's a purchase you can feel good about.

■ Here's another shopping experience that's guilt-free.

Sandrock Elementary School's School Advisory Committee hosts an indoor garage sale from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the school's gymnasium, 201 E. Ninth St.

■ See some great photos and get your book signed as photographer Carol Walker gives a presentation and signing of her books "Wild Hoofbeats: America's Vanishing Wild Horses" and "Horse Photography: The Dynamic Guide for Horse Lovers."

Carol will be at Downtown Books, 543 Yampa Ave., at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Call the bookstore 824-5343 for more.

■ Attend a revival at the Church of God this weekend.

Evangelists Willard and Debbie Wantulok, of Arkansas, will be in Craig for services at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 9 a.m. Sunday at the church, 680 Washington St.

They're open to the public

For more info., call 826-2916.

■ Take the kids and yourself to a family literacy night.

Gary Johnston, a retired educator, presented these nights last week at two local elementary schools. This week, he's at East Elementary School, 600 Texas Ave., at 6 p.m. today and Ridgeview Elementary School, 655 Westridge Road, at 6 p.m. Thursday.

The event invites parents to learn about the importance of reading. The perks are free dinner, and the kids will be invited to do literacy-related activities while parents listen to the talk.

If you have questions, call East at 824-6042 or Ridgeview at 824-7018.
