Hairy but not-so-scary times await at this annual Provincetown gathering spearheaded by the Northeast Ursamen, an organization for the region’s bear community. Spookybear, held the weekend before Halloween, is a fun, frisky and festive lineup of events that includes club nights, like a medieval-themed costume party at Paramount, bear dune tours and a boisterous farewell brunch. And even if you don’t typically count yourself among the Ursamen, Spookybear generally attracts a pack of cubs, otters and other admirers of the hot and hirsute swarming P’town’s party scene one last time before autumn ends. The only terrifying story would be to miss it.
