Where to Celebrate Halloween in Baltimore
Halloween is the only time of the year when lions, tigers and bears can take on an entirely un Oz-like meaning. Luckily, Halloween falls on a Friday this year, so that means not worrying about stumbling into work with a frankenstein-sized hangover the next day. Baltimore has plenty of awesome events and parties to choose from, so put on your most creative costume and head out amongst the ghosts, ghouls, goblins and more for a good time.
