There's certainly lots to do in the Huron Valley area - Milford, Highland White Lake and Commerce - in the month of October, much of it to do with pumpkins and hayrides and little ghosts and goblins. To check out the events in this area go to my Web site - www.movetomilford.com I try to keep up with the posters that pop up around town and the events that various groups and organizations are running during the month.
If your group or organization has an upcoming event that you'd like to see posted in the calendar or a poster for the Poster Wall on my site, please send me an email - email@example.com If you have a PDF file of your poster or flyer that would be great.
One of my favorite annual events is coming up near the end of the months - the Milford BOO Bash. There is nothing that epitomizes small town America more than this parade of costumed kids past the doors of the downtown stores and businesses. Merchants and restaurateurs hand out candy to the kids as they pass by. I'm sure that Mayberry probably had something like this, too; or they wish that they had.
Looking further forward there's an interesting Survival Training weekend at Kensington Metropark on he first weekend in November. Participants will learn how to find their way out of being lost on Saturday and how to build as shelter (I guess if you can get out) on Sunday. Also on Sunday is an event in Milford at the Hibbard Tavern commemorating the 120th birthday of Edsel Ford. See more about all ofth is on the calendar at www.movetomilford.com
