Our pumpkin hearts are broken this year because Halloween as we know it has been postponed indefinitely. But there’s no need to be rude and ghost the holiday (what did it ever do to us anyways?) With a little help from the Haunted Happenings Digital Marketplace, Haunted Happenings are still, well, happening.
So get out your spookie onesies and your pumpkin spice whatevers and save the date for these awesome virtual events coming up this October.
