It’s that time of year again, when all the ghouls and goblins come out to play. Halloween is just around the corner, and as I was scrolling through Dalton Events to see what kinds of spooky activities I could find, I came across several interesting events.

The Ghost Walk Tour takes place this Friday night (tomorrow night) at the Historic Hamilton House, and has two convenient tours. One at 7pm and then again at 9pm. The tour will be candle light guided through each of the rooms of the house. It will be an interactive tour, with your tour guide relating the history of the home, with some spooky ghost stories mixed in.

The Tours will be hosted by the Whitfield-Murray Historical Society, and costs $10 per person. However, tours are limited to 20 people per tour, so if you are interested in this exciting and frightening experience, reserve your spot today by calling the Whitfield-Murray Historical Society at 706-278-0217 or visiting their website at:

Can’t make it this weekend? That’s okay, The Ghost Walk Tour will take place again next Saturday Night, October 28th with two tours at 7pm and 9pm, and include a Haunted History Party.

Another cool listing I came across was the “Boo’s and Brews” event that takes place next Friday night October 27th. Though not technically a spooky event, Boo’s and Brew’s looks like it will be a great time. The event takes place at the Creative Arts Guild from 7pm to 10pm. There will be a costume contest with prizes awarded for most creative costume. There will also be live music with the Stratoblasters, horror flicks playing on the big screen, and of course, all the beer and wine you can drink. Tickets are $10 for students and $25 for all of us who haven’t sat at a school desk in a long time. To purchase tickets, go to or call 706-278-0168.

If having some good old fashion family fun with the kids is more up your alley, then the Rock Bridge Church Fall Festival is what you’re looking for. The Festival takes place on Saturday October 28th from 2pm to 5pm at the new Burr Park located at 101 South Hamilton Street in Downtown Dalton.

Rock Bridge Fall Festival provides a safe environment for families in our community to come enjoy the season together! There will be games, inflatables, candy, and more…all for FREE! Also, if you’re interested in volunteering for this cool event visit

Last but certainly not least, the Dalton State College English Club will host “Literary Spooktacular” on Halloween Day from 11am until 4pm. Join the DSC English Club for some frightening fiction, deadly drama, and petrifying poems. Dress as your favorite author or character or just drop by to listen in as Colloquia: The English Club at Dalton State, the Roberts Library, and the Department of English get their spook on! Award for the best literary costume at 3:05. The event is free and open to the public.

So, with all these spooky events coming up, Halloween is sure to be a blast this year, even though it’s on a TuesdayL. If you have a spooky event that you would like to list on Dalton Events, just visit the website at and follow the submission process.
