Oh no — this is scary. The Exchange Club Lake Highlands Halloween Carnival is canceled this year. Boo. Every year the Exchange Club hosts a haunted party for all the neighborhood kids. It’s by far the best-attended Halloween affair in our neighborhood, but this year, because of a huge remodeling project happening at the LH North rec center where the carnival typically takes place, it won’t happen.  Exchange Club president Tommy Bailey says they just couldn’t find a suitable replacement location.

Don’t worry too much, because our neighborhood schools and associations are sure to pull through with plenty of holiday festivals and activities. Keep watching Back Talk this month to learn more about fall events, or if you have the details about one, post it in the comments or on our Submit an Event page.
