WEST HARTFORD — Just like everything in 2020, Halloween will likely look a little different this year. But, that doesn’t mean that you and your family have to sit at home bored. You can still take part in some tricks, treats and spooky thrills thanks to Culliver Crantz, creator of the FrightVision series.

Every Friday in October will feature a different set of Halloween-related activities. All you have to do is visit www.frightvisionbooks.com and take part in the virtual fun.

To further get the kids engaged and involved, Crantz is hosting a Spooky Writing Contest. Kids ages 8-12 can submit their spookiest stories of 1,000 words or less. The winning stories will be read aloud by some top authors, according to an email from organizers.

Join FrightVision as they take Freaky Fridays in October to another level with Carve-Con.
