Halloween Events

Put a face covering on, keep hand sanitizer close by, and then put on a Halloween mask for a frightful good time around Elkhart County. Remember, maintain social distance from zombies (and other people too!). 

Be sure to post pictures of your best costumes and makeup with #INElkhartCo
