With fall right around the corner, it means that it’s almost Halloween time. Spirit stores have already started popping up in the area, and it’s definitely not too early to start making plans and putting together your costume. 

For major Halloween fans looking to make some extra money this fall, a big local theme park is offering an opportunity you might not want to pass up.

Could this be the ultimate part-time job for Halloween lovers?
