“Our inaugural ‘Halloweekend’ in 2019 was so much fun for the community we decided to bring it back this fall,” said Kevin Mitchell, Homewood Mountain Resort general manager. “Halloween is a staff favorite holiday at Homewood and West Shore Cafe, and we’re excited to continue the festivities including a haunted house and other family fun this year.”

Halloweekend will kick off with “The Haunting” at West Shore Café at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21. This Halloween dinner experience won’t be for the faint of heart.
