The final week of October ends with that hallowed holiday we all loved as kids, Halloween, and there are plenty of events and programs happening before it arrives on Thursday.
Weather wise it should be a bit warmer this week than last where we saw temps hit the low 50s during daytime hours and even lower at night. Predictions by Weather.com show mid to high 50s with a temp of 61 degrees by Friday. That should make trick or treating a bit more enjoyable on Thursday.
Here’s what’s going on around town this week.
