It’s almost time for ghouls and ghosts and things that go bump in the night. No need to worry, though. These creepy visitors can all be appeased with candy.
There are several community events planned around town to celebrate Halloween and the harvest season, and they all give kids a chance to dress up for the occasion, play games and indulge their sweet tooths.
Here’s what going on in Lemon Grove:
The Lemon Grove Little League will host a Trunk or Treat and Movie Night fundraiser starting at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Nichals Street field. Everyone is welcome to wear costumes. Trunk or Treat starts at 7 p.m. Bring blankets or chairs for watching The Nightmare Before Christmas. The snack bar will be open. Cost is $5 per person.
