October Adult Fun
The Town of Leland plans serious fun
Sometimes October seems to be all about the kids and Halloween, but the Town of Leland has events planned for this month aimed at entertaining all ages.
Adult Field Day
On October 12, grown-ups have the chance to relive some of their elementary school glory days with Adult Field Day. Teams of four will compete in a variety of grade school games, such as dodgeball, kickball and there-legged races. It’s a great opportunity for neighborhoods, civic groups and even coworkers to have a fun day and get some good exercise at the same time. We could all use a good workout before chowing down on candy later this month. Pre-registration is preferred and the cost is just $10 per four-member team. This event is for anyone ages 18 and older, and runs from 3-6 p.m. in Leland Municipal Park. For more information and to pre-register, visit https://www.townofleland.com/parks-recreation.
Later this month, the woods come alive to delight and scare adults and children. The woods at Leland Municipal Park become haunted, thanks to the Opera House Theater Company, who is partnering with the Town to host this spooky event. Walking the trail is free, 7-9 p.m. on October 26. While you’re there, don’t forget to take your little pirates and princesses, goblins and ghosts to the Town’s Trunk or Treat, also at the park from 4-6 p.m. Local businesses will be handing out treats from their decorated vehicles. So snap a selfie with a monster, stroll among the haunted woods and have a ghoulishly terrific time! For more information on the event, check https://www.townofleland.com/parks-recreation.
