The ghouls and ghosts got out a little early for Halloween this year.

Sequim area organizations hosted a handful of events on Oct. 28, for children and adults over the weekend to offer sweets, pumpkins and the opportunity to dress up for some fun.

Some of those events included Sequim High School’s Haunted Hallways, the Sequim Prairie Grange’s Pumpkin Party and Country Fair, and the Sequim Boys & Girls Club’s Halloween Bash.
