For the first time since 2019, you will be able to explore a United States Coast Guard ship while getting into the Halloween spirit. Like many activities, the tradition of the Ghost Ship was derailed by the pandemic. After being shut out entirely in 2020, the United States Coast Guard members were able to get into the Halloween spirit in 2021 by hosting trick-or-treating hours outside of their Sturgeon Bay headquarters. This year, turning the Coast Guard Cutter Mobile Bay into a floating haunted house is something Navigator John Allen says his fellow guardsmen were looking forward to doing.
The Ghost Ship will run from 5-8 p.m. on Friday, October 28th. The event is free to attend, but the members of the Cutter Mobile Bay hope you choose to bring a canned food item to donate. It acts as a kick-off to a weekend full of Halloween activities throughout Door County the following day, including Thrills and Chills in Sturgeon Bay, Jack O’Lantern Days in Fish Creek, and the Halloween Safe Walk in Egg Harbor.
