With the budget cutbacks for the City of Gridley, one of the events cancelled was the annual Halloween Carnival hosted by the Gridley Recreation Department.

Orchard Hospital has stepped up to the plate and will host a great Haunted House behind the hospital complete with bounce houses, plenty of candy and trick or treating.

Hovlid residents will be handing the candy out which will be a great time for them to see all the darling children dressed up as their favorite character, pumpkin, witch, skeleton, you name it!

Bring your children for this fun-filled event from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

The Gridley-Biggs Police Department is giving community kids their very own trick or treat bag which will include special treats for both parents and kids for Halloween along with some goodies for “Drug Free Awareness Week” which is this week.

Bring your children to the police department to collect their goodie bags while supplies last.
