Happening Through Halloween

The Amagansett Food Institute, along with Kate Mueth and the Neo-Political Cowgirls, will present “Hysteria: An Immersive Haunt Experience” Friday through Sunday from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Amagansett Farmers Market. “Hysteria” will feature a walk through the market’s grounds to experience the “causes, cures, and curses” of the painful psychological state. Groups of 10 will move through the guided journey every 12 minutes or so, and the most attentive among them will receive a bonus “room of fear” if they pass an interrogation at journey’s end. “Hysteria” is for ages 13 and up and costs $20. Hot cider, doughnuts, and additional treats will be available for purchase each night during the event. Also, the wine stand will extend its hours to 10 p.m. for purchases throughout. Proceeds will benefit the institute and the Neo-Political Cowgirls’ educational initiatives. 

The Southampton Arts Center on Job’s Lane will be tricked out as a haunted house featuring monsters under the bed, scary clowns, an evil butcher, zombies, and a forest of skeletons, with the lights on for the first hour for younger visitors. It will be open until 10 on Friday night and Saturday, from 4 to 9 on Sunday, and from 4 to 7 on Halloween. Admission is $5.

Forever Bungalows at 765 Route 114 in East Hampton will be decorated for a Halloween haunted trail open to all Friday through Monday from noon to 6 p.m. There will be treats for kids and a raffle for adults with a chance to win a free two-night stay.


Saturday is the day for the Little Lucy’s Canine Couture Boutique dog parade down Job’s Lane in Southampton. Pets and their owners, costumed for the occasion, will gather at 91 Job’s Lane by 1 p.m. The $10 cost per dog benefits the Southampton Animal Shelter. The event includes a raffle with items donated by local shops, treats for people and beasts alike, awards for best costumes, and music by Beau Hulse. Should rain threaten, a call to 631-287-2352 will tell whether the parade will be postponed.
