A spooky weekend in Western New York


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Hope you have your costume ready! Halloween events are taking over this weekend in Western New York.

Your little ghost or ghoul will enjoy breakfast, a costume parade, arts, crafts and games at the Old Falls Street Monster Mash. It returns to the Niagara Conference and Events Center Saturday morning from 8:30 until noon. Tickets are available in advance or at the door. For more information, log onto FallsStreet.com.

Costumes are also encouraged for the Pumpkin Run 5K in Williamsville. The race takes off at 10:30 a.m. Saturday from Spin Drift Drive off Main Street. There will also be a family fun walk and a kids relay. The event is a fundraiser for Gateway-Longview, which will host the post-race party at their Main Street campus. You can register now at http://www.buffalopumpkinrun.com/.

Buffalo’s historic Central Terminal is one of the spookiest spots in Western New York. And this weekend, Beyond Ghosts will bring its popular ghost tours back to the East Side landmark. You can learn about the history of the terminal and the well-documented paranormal activity that has taken place there over the years. Tours run Friday and Saturday nights from now until November 1 starting at 10 p.m. To pre-register, log onto BeyondGhosts.com.

It’s Hallowine Weekend along the Niagara Wine Trail. All the wineries will be open for fall-themed tastings. You may even find yourself in the middle of a murder mystery. Visit NiagaraWineTrail.org to plan your trip.

Italian and Italians at heart can embrace their heritage in a humorous way at this one man show. Blood Type: Ragu runs now through Sunday at Shea’s Smith Theater. It explores the joys of growing up in a big Sicilian family, in the post-World War II era. Find times and ticket information at sheas.org.
