Do you love Halloween? It's one of our favorite holidays. We love it so much that for 25 years we hosted a Halloween Open House where we served home-made chili, clam chowder, root beer, hot chocolate and cider along with donuts. We had a house full for hours and estimated that we served 300 people that one night. It was great, and we're sorry if you missed it, but you have lots of other options for Halloween fun.
