Hannibal's busting out a new festival to celebrate all things Halloween. The Haunted Hannibal Halloween Festival starts with a Ghoul's Night Out on Friday, Oct. 26 and runs until Oct. 31 with two parades and a big line-up of events.
The Historic Hannibal Marketing Council is putting on this first-of-its-kind festival in our area.  The council also organizes Hannibal's largest event, the Autumn Historic Folklife Festival.  They do a remarkable job of bringing people downtown, residents and tourists alike.
The Haunted Halloween Festival features a ton of activities downtown on Saturday, October 27.  Living and Dead Windows is a take on the Christmas event, where merchants decorate their windows, staged with montages of real people. There's also a pet parade, followed by a people parade and costume contest.
On Halloween, merchants will host trick-or-treaters at their businesses.  The streets will be lined with vehicles for trunk-or-treat too. There will be booths, activities and monster trucks, all between 5pm to 8pm on Main Street.  Click here for a full list of times and activities
Also running through the month of October are the Haunted Hannibal Ghost Tours http://www.hauntedhannibal.com/  The Hannibal History Museum has been hosting the tours for several years now.  They've become so popular in the region that tours often sell out so reservations are recommended.
