Below is a sample of some of the planned activities in the Lowcountry leading up to Oct. 31.


▪  The annual Trick or Treat in downtown Beaufort on Bay Street will be from 4:30 to 6 p.m. According to a news release, Bay Street, from Newcastle to Carteret streets, and Port Republic Street, from Charles to Scott streets, will be closed to traffic from 4:15 to 6 p.m.
