Freaky Friday Fright Nite among treats

Looking very much like a “Good Witch,” Debbie Pinchok, left, helped give out candy at last year’s Freaky Friday Fright Nite – planned this year from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, again in Mayor Bob Leonard Park — to hundreds of area children, including siblings Layla and Hayden Johnson (See Planner for more details). Farragut has lots of good and frightful Halloween fun in store before that event, too, starting with a Bat Box Workshop at Town Hall from 10 a.m. to noon this Saturday, Oct. 19, led by experts from the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. Cost is $25.

Participants are encouraged to wear costumes, and the hike is designed for ages 10 and older. Cost is $5 for individuals and $10 for families. Register by calling 865-577-4717, ext. 127 or online at
