Get your ghouls on

Visitors to the sixth annual Halloween Carnival at Fort Flagler State Park will be able to walk through the Portal of Peril and down Trick or Treat Street Oct. 24-25.

There also will be carnival games and zombie hay rides. New this year, visitors can join walking ghost tours at 6 or 7:30 p.m. During the walk, participants will hear about the fort’s history and stories of paranormal events and unexplained oddities.

The event, which runs from 6-9 p.m. each night, is sponsored by The Friends of Fort Flagler. The park is at 10541 Flagler Road, Nordland. No Discover Pass is required to attend the event. Admission is $7 per person or $25 for a group of four people. Organizers have suggested a donation of $5 per person for the ghost tours.

The 784-acre park includes a campground and 19,100 feet of Puget Sound shoreline. It is the site of the former Fort Flagler, which was built in 1897 along with forts Worden and Casey to protect the nautical entrance to the Sound.
