NEW YORK—Happy Halloween! This week is a time to chow down on candy, stock up on scary movies and just generally enjoy the spookiest night of the year before we head into the overwhelming holiday season head first. This week, we’re taking a look at how some indies are celebrating this final day of October. Celebrations across the country ran the gamut from pumpkin decorating contests to in office trick or treat events to spooky decors.
