Downtown L’Anse and Houghton are both getting spooky, but not too spooky this weekend. Family fun is the name of the game. Boo on the Bay is Baraga County’s biggest trick or treating event. From four to six today, kids will be encouraged to stop at businesses to nab some goodies. Live music by the Northern Witches will set the mood, and beginning at 6:00, a special kids version of the Howl-O-Scream Haunted House runs for two hours at Meadowbrook Arena. Polly Schaefer talks about the difference between the normal tour and the kid-friendly edition.
Saturday, Houghton will be closing Shelden Avenue for three hours to ensure that everything can be done outdoors. Manager Eric Waara says there will be no haunted house inside City Center, but there are plenty of substitute activities.
Waara says Treat Street is a great way to safely gather with other community members.
