Events this Week: Oct. 25 – Nov. 2, 2022

Halloween is here! There are plenty of trunk-or-treat events across the county for those who live in areas not quite densely populated enough for trick-or-treating. The Court House Library has a very special concert this week, and spooky parades abound. There’s a lot to do this week, and you’d be a fool not to check at least one of these events out before events slump between Halloween and Thanksgiving.
