Friendly spirits


Reiman Gardens' merry (not scary) annual Halloween celebration, "Spirits in the Gardens," is slated for Oct. 19 and 20 from 4 to 7 p.m. Dress in your finest ghoulish garb and enjoy the family-friendly festivities.

Activities include storytelling, a close-up look at the raptors and owls from Iowa State's Wildlife Care Clinic, a scavenger hunt, broomball, crafts and trick-or-treating. In case of bad weather, all events will be moved inside.

Admission is free for youth under 18. Regular admission applies for all others ($8 for adults; $7 for seniors). Submitted photo.
