Stroudsburg – Ghosts and Goblins are invited to downtown Stroudsburg on Saturday, October 31, as st’ART Stroudsburg and the Pocono Arts Council present Halloween on Main.

Gigi and Company Dance Troupe will perform at 7:50 pm in the Square as Monsters, Zombies, Ghouls and Creepers – audience participation in costume encouraged – are released with the Juggernaut String Band leading the way on a Monster Crawl through Stroudsburg’s haunted Main Street.
