in hallowed grounds 

There's so much ghoulish fun to be had on Hallow's Eve. Check our Spectator calendar on page 50 and our music calendar on page 61 for a full list of Halloween-related activities. Hellzapoppin' all weekend long and all over the Triangle--from an ape-themed calvalcade at Kings in Raleigh to Evil Wiener at Nightlight in Chapel Hill to The Butchies' costume party at Ooh La Latte in Durham.

The biggest party of all is the annual Franklin Street freakshow in Chapel Hill, where town officials expect 70,000 people Sunday night. Here's what you need to know so things don't get scary: Do not, we repeat, do not attempt to park downtown. The streets close at 9 p.m., and cars parked on East Franklin will be towed starting at 6 p.m. Shuttle buses to and from park-and-ride lots cost $3 one-way, $5 round trip. The four lots are the Jones Ferry Road lot in Carrboro, Southern Village off Hwy. 15-501, the NC Hwy. 54 lot and University Mall. Please note that carrying alcoholic beverages, glass bottles or anything resembling a weapon will get you in trouble. So play nice. --Fiona Morgan
