Looks like this is going to be one of the biggest holiday weekends of the year! There are so many Halloween events going on that I’m not going to even begin to list them all, because, well…thankfully, they’re all in one place! Check out County 10’s Halloween 2023 events page for everything fun and spooky this weekend through Halloween next Tuesday…events, haunted houses, and even a Trick or Treat map! There’s tons of fun to be had in Riverton, Lander, Shoshoni, Ethete, Fort Washakie, Dubois…all over the County!
Many of these events are fundraisers for great causes, so bring your checkbook or some cash to donate, a canned food item if they’re having a food drive…or find out more information on how to volunteer or support future events and activities with their group or organization. I’m sure they’ll all appreciate your support, as it takes a lot of work to put together events like these! They also give opportunities to connect with your community in a good way.
There are other things going on, too…there’s a community craft fair and a music concert in Lander; there’s an open mic night in Riverton. The new Fremont County DUI Team will be out in full swing and by the way…Saturday is National First Responder Day, so let’s be sure to show our thanks and support to all of our first responders by being safe and responsible while we’re out and about on this busy weekend!
Winter weather has finally arrived, so be sure to put those layers on…bundle up, dress up, and have fun in the 10!
