Starting October 29, 2020

“There is a child in every one of us who is still a trick-or-treater looking for a brightly-lit front porch.” Robert Brault, American Author

Along with Halloween, this weekend brings us a full moon and the end of Daylight Savings Time! If you feel like venturing out, sporting a costume and mask (in addition to the style we've become accustomed to wearing), below you will find numerous welcoming venues, and an extra hour to enjoy yourselves! Go forth, get into the spirit (like the mystery Brass Castle Road resident who put together the creative display pictured above), and find that brightly-lit porch!

It is also time to get in your last digs of pumpkin picking and other "Fall Farm Fun" activities, most of which are coming to end after this weekend. And don't forget to vote by November 3! If you need help with the ins and outs of polling places and drop boxes, visit WarrenCountyVotes.com.

Happy Halloween, Happy Election Day, and Happy Wanderings!
