Halloween is just around the corner and we think this year is going to be bigger and better than ever! It's not just chidren that love this holiday, but studies are now showing that almost half of 18-40 year olds are now getting dolled up (or down!) for the occasion and heading out..we think this can only be a good thing for local business'.
