SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Ghouls are on the loose and looking for a wild time. Put on your costume and join them for a very special charity ball. Dance the night away to live music and maybe even steal a prize for the best outfit. The Ghouls Gone Wild ball is Friday from 7p.m. until midnight at the Lyman Community Center in Gulfport.

Humans aren't the only ones dressing up for the occasion, in Pascagoula and D'Iberville cars will be decorated for "Trunk or Treat." Bring the children and get lots of candy, also enjoy a karaoke contest, giveaways, face painting and more. Downtown Pascagoula is the place to be Friday from 5p.m. until 7p.m. and the D'Iberville Sports Complex Saturday beginning at 6p.m.

It will be a haunted time in Old Town Bay St. Louis Saturday for the first ever Fall Festival and Jammin' Jambalaya cook off. Enjoy live entertainment, a haunted house, trick or treating and a costume contest. Also bring your furry friends out for the annual Barktoberfest. Enjoy traditional German food, a dog parade, blessing of the animals, pet portraits and paw-strology readings. The fall fest begins at 10a.m. and the Barkotber fest kicks off at 11a.m.

Take a break from the Halloween festivities and bring your tackle and cooler to Biloxi's Hiller Park Pond for The Fishing for Catfish tournament. Children 15 years and younger are invited to cast their lines and compete for awards ranging from largest fish, smallest fish and even ugliest and most unusual fish. Bait and lunch will be provided for all fishers. The tournament is Saturday from 9a.m. until 11a.m.

Bring your antique cars, trucks or bikes to the Ghosts, Goblins and Chariots car show. Owners are encouraged to dress up, there will be prizes for the top three costumes. The show is Saturday from 9a.m. until 5p.m. at the Hardy Court Shopping Center in Gulfport.

For all those thrill seekers out there, the Trail of Terror in Hurley offers 5 acres of horrifying sights with over 70 people acting as zombies, creepy clowns, ghosts and more. You're sure to be shaking in your boots as you leave. It's open Saturday from 7p.m. until 11p.m. on Payne Road. Or The Haunted Trail in Saucier was voted the "Best Haunted Happening on the Mississippi Gulf Coast" and all the benefits go to the prevention of child abuse.
