Local state parks host Halloween events

Indianapolis, In.— Don’t wait until the official Halloween on Oct. 31. Celebrate the season at a State Park or State Recreation Area (SRA) near you — or hit the road and enjoy multiple events while enjoying the fall scenery at the same time.

The ninth annual Trail of Scarecrows at Prophetstown State Park is in progress and runs until Nov. 3. See bit.ly/2AdOWbX.
