The Halloween season is in full swing.

The decorations around Baton Rouge have been up for a couple of weeks. There's been a near constant chorus of screams coming from The 13th Gate for a month. The weather has finally started to dip into cooler territory. And we're sure you've had your costume planned out since Nov. 1, 2018.

Halloween in the capital city really got rolling last weekend with the annual 10/31 Consortium parade and Fifolet Halloween Festival. But that was just the tip of the candy mountain.

Spooky events are planned all over the city through Nov. 1, from adult trick-or-treating to family-friendly activities. To help keep track of all of this month's local events, take look through our Halloween guide below.

And remember, the spirits can't find you if you're dressed up.
