Plenty of tricks and treats throughout the High Country

Halloween is known primarily for door-to-door fun. Not so in the High Country, where neighborhoods are outnumbered by homes in more secluded and less developed surroundings. Thus the holiday night becomes more of a holiday week, with family friendly events of all types throughout the area. That includes school festivals, church events, business treats and the ever popular trunk o treats.

The High Country Press newspaper recently ran down a list of several area Halloween activities.
