P-Town Halloween Events: Spooky Bear Weekend and Ghost Town

Prepare yourself for all the scares and fun that only a Halloween weekend in P-Town can bring!  Not only do we have one of the most popular “haunted houses” on the cape, but we also welcome the bears back for Spooky Bear Weekend!  Member inns of the Distinctive Inns of Provincetown welcome one and all for the fun of Halloween, 2012!

Ghost Town
As the story goes: on October 31, 1736, pirate Captain Davy Flint and his crew sailed into the peaceful village of Provincetown.  The citizens were defenseless against the onslaught, and none were spared in this violent plundering as the entire town was burnt to the ground.  Some say that the spirits of these poor souls still look for revenge to this day.  Each year, the days surrounding October 31 bring a strange fog to the town, and the angry dead come back to claim their town, no matter what the cost to the living!

You will make your way through teetering buildings, pirate ruins, and grave-sites; all while being plagued by these restless beings.  Escape if you can!

This attraction is meant for people 12 years of age and up; all children must be accompanied by an adult.  Any children under 12 will be admitted at the parents’ discretion.  This attraction is not handicap-accessible.

The bear-boys come back to town on October 26-28, 2012 for one last weekend before hibernation when the Northeast Ursamen host Spooky Bear Weekend 2012 in conjunction with the Crown and Anchor.  From the responses seen so far, we expect to see at least 175 bears migrating to P-Town that weekend!
The weekend will start off on Friday, October 26, 2012 with a free Open House Meet and Greet at the Wave Bar, followed by a free showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Cabaret.  After the movie, the Saints & Sinners Hot Bear/Leather/Uniform/Fetish Party commences at the Paramount Nightclub for a $5 cover charge.  After the party you can hang out at the Spiritus Pizza & Bearwatch to kick back, socialize, and check out the sights!

Saturday, October 27, 2012 starts off with the Bear Market at The Boatslip.  The free Afternoon Tee at The Vault lets you get into the mood for the night’s activities (wear your craziest and wildest tee-shirts for a chance to win prizes).  The big event is the Spookybear Party and Costume Contest at the Paramount Nightclub for a $10 cover charge.  DJ/Producer John LePage will spin the best dance tunes for your frolicking pleasure, and cash prizes will be given for the Best Group, Sexiest, and Scariest costumes!

Also on Saturday is the first annual Hamburger Eating Challenge at Blondie’s Burgers.  The first 6 bears who sign up at Blondie’s or Blondie’s Facebook Page will be given the challenge of eating a Blondie’s Grizzly Bear Burger (over 1 pound of beef) and 1 pound of Blondie’s handcut fries loaded with chili and cheese!  The one to do this the fastest will win a $100 gift certificate and trophy.

On Sunday, October 28, 2012, the Farewell Breakfast Buffet brings you back to life and ready for your trip home.  This all-you-can-eat event costs $14 + tip (tax included).


There is so much happening at Halloween this year!  Make your plans now for your spooky P-Town vacation and call your favorite Provincetown, Cape Cod Inn to check for availability and any specials during this weekend of fun.
