With Halloween falling on a Sunday this year, and Saturday being Razorback Homecoming night, there are basically Halloween-related celebrations happening all weekend this weekend.
Some folks are celebrating on Friday, some folks are celebrating on Saturday, and some folks will celebrate on Sunday, which is technically Halloween night.
That should make it easier to enter and win some of the $700 or so of cash and prizes in Halloween costume contests on the list this week.
Somebody, please beat out that Ghostbusters guy who wins all the prize money every year, will ya?
Here’s what’s new this week. Happy Halloween!
