Spirit Lake Haunted Trail

We heard a rumor that only the bravest Halloween-ers can make it all the way through this spooky hike, but it is open to all ages. If you love being startled and scared, head to the southwest corner of the Spirit Lake Casino parking lot. (We won’t tell anyone if you end up sleeping with the lights on when you go to bed.)

Devils Lake Honor Society Fundraiser
5k Run/Walk and Costume Contest

It can be tricky to burn off the calories from all those treats, so we’re heading over to Ruger Park for a bit of exercise and a fun fundraiser to boot! All ages and fitness levels are welcome.

Registration forms can be picked up at Devils Lake High School, Lake Region Fitness, Britsch Associates, Leevers Foods, Dr. Krein, Moen & Enderle Eye Clinic, Prime Therapy and Wellness, Gerrells, and Ramsey Bank.
