Numerous organizations as well as surrounding city and village authorities have reached out to Durand Now to get the word spread about haunted and Halloween-themed happenings over the next several days. You can get all the information on our HAUNTED HOT SHEET, sponsored by the Durand Eagles Halloween Party, but we've prepared a little preview.
In many communities, including Durand, Bancroft, Byron, Vernon, Corunna, Gaines and Lennon, trick-or-treating hours will run from 6pm to 8pm on Friday, Halloween night. While many churches and organizations have offered trick-or-treating alternatives in the recent past, this year, numerous city-sanctioned alternatives will occur as well.
In Durand, you can find alternatives at Durand Free Methodist Church at 708 S. Oak Street and at Durand Church of the Nazarene at 9725 E. Monroe Road. The Durand Fire Department will also be open for trick-or-treaters and parents to warm up and enjoy cider and donuts. All these events run 6 to 8pm.
The Village of Bancroft will host Trunk-or-Treat on Friday from 6 to 8pm; Bancroft Police will be downtown to fight off the ghouls and the streets will be closed for the safety of kids.
