 The annual Haunting on the Lake Festival will be held Oct. 23-24 at Twin Lakes State Park, Green Bay.

The festival offers activities for every age with family fun crafts and games from 4-10 p.m. both nights.  Activities include a pumpkin patch with pumpkins to pick and paint in the park (or take home to decorate), and at 6 p.m. a child-friendly adventure trail for families will feature characters that talk about nocturnal animals and a man-made cave to explore inside the concession stand.

On Oct. 24 the park campground will open to the public at 4 p.m. for trick or treating and a costume parade. Local author Francis Wood will be on the beach telling ghost stories around the fire.
