Without a doubt, the kids of Freehold are the creepiest at the Jersey Shore. The reason may surprise you!

For more than 20 years, Freehold Regional High School District art students have taken to the streets of downtown Freehold in October, to transform the windows of local businesses with Halloween-themed paintings as a part of Spooktacular! Starting tomorrow from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., the Spooktacular tradition that the entire community anticipates, continues!  The Spooktacular Parade is scheduled for Sunday, October 28th from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. in downtown Freehold.
