Thrills on Third – Sturgeon Bay   

Ghosts, witches, zombies- oh my! Watch out for the spooky characters you may come across during the 7th annual Thrills on Third event happening throughout the historic Third Avenue in Sturgeon Bay on Saturday, October 27. The fun filled day begins at 9am where there will be plenty of family-friendly activities.


Head over to the Boys and Girls Club of Door County from 9-11am where they will be hosting a free pumpkin painting activity.

Kids are welcome to paint and decorate pumpkins on a first-come, first-served basis. Over a hundred small-medium sized pumpkins will be provided and sponsored by Artists Guild.

Participants are encouraged to bring a canned good for donation. The decorated pumpkins will be placed along the parade route until 3pm. Also taking place at the Boys and Girls Club of Door County is their spine-chilling haunted house.

Walk through the haunted house from 10am-1pm. Beginning at 11am, the Boys and Girls Club will be grilling and selling hot dogs, hamburgers, lemonade, chips, and popcorn.

Don’t forget to get your hands dirty in an ooey gooey slime making session at the Door County Library any time from 9am-12pm.


Parade participants should gather at Martin Park, 207 S. Third Avenue, at 12:45pm for costume judging. The costume parade is open to all, including pets. Floats are not permitted.

At 1pm, all participants will march down Third Avenue to Community Foundation Square, at the corner of Third Ave. and Kentucky St. Awards for first, second, and third place best costumes will be awarded by Miss Door County’s Outstanding Teen, Ashley Ellefson. A prize for the best pet costume will also be awarded.

After the parade, participants are encouraged to walk along Third Avenue to take part in trick-or-treating at participating businesses until 3pm.
