The Rhinelander area is in full Halloween-swing this time of year with many different options for having some spooktacular fun with the whole family.
The fun will be starting out at Hanson’s Garden Village Saturday, Oct. 15, during their annual Fall Fest. You don’t have to travel far out of town to find some great traditional farm activities like a petting zoo, two corn mazes, tractor hay rides, and so much more.
Friday, Oct. 21, marks the date of the annual YMCA of the Northwoods “Not So Scary” Halloween Trail. The Stoney Pines Trail behind the Y will be magically transformed by local community members, groups, businesses and Y staff. Families are invited to celebrate Halloween in a safe environment with friends and family and get some Halloween goodies.
The Haunted Hodag Howl, an adult Halloween Costume party, which will include the final Hodag statue auction, will be held Saturday, Oct. 22, at the Hodag Banquet Center. This annual party includes games, raffles, hors d’ oeuvres, music and dancing. Wear a costume and receive five free raffle tickets!
Trick-or-treaters should mark their calendars for two upcoming opportunities to get their favorite Halloween treats. Downtown Rhinelander businesses will be open for trick-or-treaters Saturday, Oct. 29, from 2-4 p.m. Citywide trick-or-treating will once again take place on Halloween, Oct. 31, from 4-7 p.m. More information on downtown and citywide trick-or-treating can be found by contacting the City of Rhinelander, or the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce.
More information on these and other great events and activities can always be found on the online community calendar at www.ExploreRhinelander.com.
