Halloween comes early at lighthouse

Halloween starts early at the Leelanau State Park, where from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday families can wander the haunted Grand Traverse Lighthouse basement, climb the haunted tower and take the treasure chest challenge. The charge for the family-favorite Lighthouse Museum fundraiser is only $4 for adults and $2 for children. A state park pass is also required.

Cherry pie, ice cream and political discourse

Don’t miss this year’s Cherry Pie Debate set for next Thursday, Oct. 20, featuring state house 101st District candidates Dan Scripps and Curt VanderWall. Commissioner candidates will also be asked to speak. Local cherry pie and ice cream will be dished out when doors open at 6 p.m., and donations will be accepted for the Empire Food Pantry. The debate will be held in the venerable Glen Arbor Township Hall.
