Halloween is right around the corner and students at Durfee are preparing for a fun-filled night. With Halloween falling on a Friday, the holiday is going to be even more popular this year! Word around Durfee’s halls is that students will be partaking in trick-or-treating, visiting haunted houses, and buying costumes. 


One idea to get in the Halloween spirit is to visit the Factory of Terror. This Fall River staple is a haunted attraction located at 33 Pearl Street. It is filled with horror and screams galore. Admission is $20 per person.


Another spooky attraction in Fall River is the Old Colony Railroad Museum's Haunted Rail Yard. Admission is only $10 and it is open on the weekends only.  The Railroad Museum is located across from Battleship Cove at 2 Water Street and is an awesome way to get spooked for a reasonable price.


If an awesome costume is what you are looking for, then look no further than Spirit Halloween stores. They seem to be popping up all over the area, as they have locations in North Dartmouth, Taunton, and Swansea. Spirit has a wide variety of costumes ranging from old favorites like scary clowns to couples' costumes like peanut butter and jelly.  The variety seems endless and can be a fun night out with friends just trying on different costumes to find your perfect look for Halloween.

Durfee senior, Danny Couto already has his Halloween night planned out.  “I am dressing up as a scary scarecrow and helping my brother-in law with his haunted front yard,” said Couto.  Carving pumpkins is also part of Couto’s Halloween plans.

“I am dressing up as Nicki Minaj and going out with my friends,” said senior Ben Norton. Norton is heading toward the Highlands neighborhood, where he says they give out the best candy.


Kayla Silva has a more traditional plan. “I am taking my niece and nephew around their block,” said Silva. She enjoys watching the kids having a good time with their friends and family.

Although students have gotten older, the Halloween spirit is still among the teen crowd, and they still want to participate in spooky festivities. Students here are looking forward to a night full of horror and fun. Happy Halloween!
