Don't be scared! There lot's to do on Chincoteague this weekend and beyond. Let's see what Evelyn Shotwell has stirring in her steamy caldron for the next couple of weeks of Chincoteague Events.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN ALL,
Tomorrow night we will have lots of little ghosts, goblins, witches, pumpkins, ballerinas, princesses, and other characters out and about on the streets of Chincoteague. Please be aware of them while you are driving and help keep them safe as they “trick or treat” from house to house. And, don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour before retiring on Saturday night as Daylight Savings Time ends. We get to recover our lost hour from April!! Yeah!!
