Halloween is here and there is no shortage of ways to celebrate.
Spooky Nocturnal Animals Hike
HUDSON -- On Saturday, Oct. 30 at 7 p.m. meet at the Willow River State Park Nature Center to join Naturalist Ashley on an evening hike, discovering who’s responsible for all those spooky sounds of the night.
With Halloween approaching, the nights are getting long, cold, dark and eerie. Who is making all those spine-chilling noises in the forests at night?! Is it a ghost or a ghoul out to steal your s’mores or your SOUL?!
