Halloween fun

Goshen-area communities have scheduled trick-or-treat hours on Oct. 30 — Nappanee and Ligonier — and on Oct. 31 — Goshen, Middlebury, Millersburg and Bristol.

But there are a number of other Halloween activities that are ongoing in October.


Judgment House — Grace Community Church will host Judgment House Oct. 23, 24 and 25 from 7 to 10:30 p.m. and Oct. 27 from 6 to 11 p.m. This is a free interactive, “uncensored,” real-life drama concerning life, death and the afterlife.
