PROVINCETOWN – For a most bizarre, outrageous, scary, and titillating Halloween experience, join Provincetown’s world-renowned four day extravaganza.

With its authentic setting out of a Hollywood horror back lot, foggy narrow lanes and jack-o-lantern festooned doorways welcome the many who return each year to party with the gaudiest of goblins and glitziest of ghouls.

From dastardly, dance-until-you’re-dead (or un-dead) parties at one of Ptown’s famed clubs, to crazy costume competitions awarding cash prizes for the sexiest or scariest ensemble, there’s no shortage of events to rattle a skeleton’s bones.

The quaint New England town’s uniqueness shines as it hosts unforgettable Halloween events.

Perhaps being home to America’s oldest and continuous permanent artist colony lends to the aura of expressionism that creates the grand scale of town’s Halloween celebration and adds to the reasons Travel + Leisure labeled it one of “America’s Quirkiest Towns.”

In a town as eclectic and progressive as Ptown – with ample excuses for costuming, dancing, and revelry year-round – Halloween requires extra flair,” said Provincetown Director of Tourism Anthony Fuccillo.

“Costumes here don’t come pre-packaged from a store, but rather require real creativity, preparation and calculated effort. Our visitors and townies are in it to win it.”

In a town known for its every-day flair for the dramatic, the fun, the glamorous and the silly, Halloween in Provincetown is an annual bucket list celebration of the bizarre.

There are a number of events starting on October 28 and continuing until Halloween.
