Many options available for Halloween festivities


OSCODA COUNTY –– There will be many opportunities across Oscoda County for those seeking fun and family-friendly activities on and around this Halloween, which will take place Tuesday, Oct. 31.

The Fairview/Comins Lions will hold the fourth annual Trunk or Treat Saturday, Oct. 28, from 5-7 p.m. at the Skyline Event Center. The free event will include hot chocolate, doughnuts and candy and is open to families, businesses and community groups. “Trunkers” are encouraged to decorate their trunks for the trick-or-treating and must call 989-848-5757 to reserve a spot.

For the third year, the Oscoda County Library’s Mio branch is hosting its Fall Family Fun Fest on Saturday, Oct. 31, at 3 p.m., and it is scheduled to go until 5 p.m. The event will feature a maze, inflatables, games, crafts, food, prizes and more. This free event is especially geared toward kids ages 0-12 but is open to everyone. Programming clerk Beth Barron said since the festival will be on Halloween, the library staff wanted to host the event right before trick-or-treating around town.

On Halloween night, the Mio Dummy Club will once again be giving out hot dogs and hot chocolate in front of the Mio Saloon at 5 p.m. Club Treasurer and Luzerne Fire Chief Duane Roddy said gun raffle tickets will also be available.

The Luzerne Chamber of Commerce’s trunk or treat will also take place Oct. 31 at the Comstock-Nelson Park, which has a pavilion that can be utilized. Beginning at 5 p.m., the Luzerne Fire Department and several local businesses will be present giving away hot chocolate and candy. The fire department will have a fire truck at the event.

The AuSable River Restaurant will host its fifth annual trunk-or-treat event Oct. 31 in its parking lot, across from Family Fare in Mio. The event will run from 4:30-7 p.m., or until candy runs out, according to owner Ann Galbraith. She said anyone is welcome to come pass out candy, noting that many volunteers and organizations typically participate.

Lastly, the Oscoda County Council on Aging is scheduled to host a Halloween party Oct. 31 at 4:30 p.m. There will be a costume contest and pumpkin painting during the event.
