The October Bluffton Artisan Markets will feature a fun Halloween theme complete with trick-or-treating, costume contest and a booth decorating contest. The next market is 1-6 p.m. Oct. 17 in the parking lot at Southern Barrel Brewing Co. Parents can rest assured that Halloween is not cancelled this year. Costume-clad children are invited to trick-or-treat with vendors. The Halloween-themed open-air market also will include a costume contest and competition for the “Best Decorated Booth.” Masks are required and social distancing best practices are encouraged. “As always, we will have live music, lots of spooky sweets and treats and food vendors,” said Katie Silva, founder of Lowcountry Made, the organization sponsoring the Bluffton Artisan markets. www.lcmade.com.
