Dogtown Haunted Walk
On Wednesday, Oct. 25, CTCA will host our first "Haunted Walk," one starting at 6 p.m. at Pat's and the second one starting at 6:30 p.m. also at Pat's.
Dogtown is filled with history, and our favorite historian John Corbett will tell us those tales on a family-friendly "haunted" walk down Tamm Avenue. At each stop and along the way, we will hear stories from John, proprietors in Dogtown, and even each other. Our stops will include free treats for the kiddos and the bars will sell special seasonal half pints for those 21+.
A $5 donation to the Clayton Tamm Community Association per family is appreciated, but not required. Funds support our parade float and Easter Egg Hunt.

Haunted Walk Q&A
Does this cost anything?
A $5 donation per family is requested, but not required, to the Clayton-Tamm Community Association.
Do I need to wear a costume? Can I wear of costume?
Costumes are totally acceptable and appreciated, though they are not required by any means.
My kids won't last two hours on this walk. Can I leave early?
Of course! You may join the walk at any point and leave at any time. We just ask that you do not skip stops (ie: don't skip Felix's and go right to St. James because we won't have a story teller there yet). Plus it's kind of rude. See the schedule above to see where we will be at a particular time.
I will be late, so can I get there at 7?
Yes, join us at the location we will be at around 7 p.m., schedule is above.
I don't really like one of the stops. Can I skip it and go to the next one?
No, sorry. We have story tellers and hosts stationed at each stop throughout the night, and it's possible that if you skip, someone won't be there. We want to respect the time of everyone, so we don't want to arrive at any location too early/too late.
I don't eat candy. Can I get something else?
Each stop will have a candy for trick-or-treat for the kiddos. You do not have to take the candy.
Are the drink specials included in the price?
No. The drinks will be sold at the venues. The $5 donation goes to the neighborhood association, and we will use it to fund our annual, free Easter Egg Hunt in the spring.
Will anyone have food to buy?
Two locations will have FREE food - Felixs Dogtown will have hot dogs, and Mac's Local Eats will have samples. If you're really hungry, either eat before the walk at The Pat Connolly Tavern or you can buy a meal at a location, just be aware of the time we're there. You may have to miss the next stop to eat your meal.
This Haunted Walk is offensive to me. Dogtown is safe and ghosts aren't real.
Don't do the walk then.
