Whether you are looking for family fun or something frightening, Castle Rock has a number of ways to celebrate Halloween.

The Castle of Terror is the fire department's annual haunted house. This year's Freak Show features the Bearded Lady, Werewolf Boy, Medusa, the Amazing Electric Man and more and is open from 7 to 10 p.m. Oct. 14, 20-21, 27-28 at the Fire Training Tower, 303 Malibu St.

This haunted house is not recommended for young children, and ages 13 and younger will not be admitted without an adult. Tickets will be sold at the door, and proceeds benefit the Fire and Police Explorer programs.

Younger goblins will enjoy face painting, a jumpy house, games, crafts and contests at the Oct. 28 Spooktacular festival. Hours are 1-3 p.m. at the Miller Activity Complex, 1375 W. Plum Creek Parkway, Castle Rock.

Once guests have had their fill at Spooktacular, they are invited to head over to the amphitheater at Philip S. Miller Park for the Harvest Festival. Open from 4 to 8 p.m., the festival includes a pumpkin patch, hay bale maze, hayrides, mini pumpkin painting and pumpkin carving. Adults can enjoy local craft beer and food. Movies begin after sunset.

Volunteer actors, makeup assistants, special effects operators and more are needed for Castle of Terror. Help with pumpkin carving, hayrides, the hay bale maze and face painting is needed for the Harvest Festival and Spooktacular. Visit VolunteerConnectDC.org to learn more about the volunteer opportunities, and to sign up.

With much of downtown being transformed, the town's annual trick-or-treat street will not take place this year. However, business owners and the Downtown Merchants Association have worked to provide Halloween day activities and specials. Check out Facebook.com/DowntownCastleRock. Once Festival Park and other downtown improvements are completed, the downtown merchants will brainstorm the future of the events.
