If you were near downtown Port St. Joe on Monday night, you might have spotted goblins ducking in and out of storefronts, witches handing out candy and sharks swimming up Reid Avenue.
The Gulf County Chamber of Commerce and the City of Port St. Joe’s annual Ghosts on the Coast kicked off at 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 31, and the children of Port St. Joe turned out by the droves for a night of Halloween fun.
Following the model set last year, this year’s costume contest was blind judged, with judges walking around selecting winners unbeknownst to the guests.
City officials say they are already looking forward to hosting Ghosts on the Coast next year, and are now shifting their focus to the upcoming holiday season. The Christmas Parade is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 10.
