This Halloween, Pimp 'n' Ho parties just aren't cuttin' it anymore, are they? Neither are the toga parties, the erotic costume contests or the naughty nurse costumes. So much bare flesh, so much cold weather. If Halloween is really to turn into The Day of Getting As Close to Naked As Possible, it should be moved to July. This is not the point. The Weekly Volcano apologizes. The point is, for you, today no longer holds the magic it once did. You seek alternative par-tays. May we suggest Bonfires, Beaver Pelts and Bogeymen at Point Defiance Park. Celebrate Halloween in the style of past centuries with ghost stories told around a roaring bonfire set to fiddle music. The storytelling begins with "gentler" tales; and after a break for complimentary cider and cookies, the stories get increasingly scarier!

BONFIRES, BEAVER PELTS AND BOGEYMEN, 7-9 p.m., Fort Nisqually Living History Museum, Point Defiance Park, 5400 N. Pearl St., Tacoma, $3-$6, 253.591.5339
