Halloween is this weekend and even though it's very important to mask up and continue social distancing, it certainly is a fun time in Greater Lansing.

So many people love Halloween and I'm one of them. My wife and I decorate the house every year with all kinds of really. cool and scary Halloween decorations.

Let's take a look at several fun things to do this week as we get ready to celebrate Halloween in Greater Lansing: (Lansing State Journal)

1. Best corn maze in Williamston. I love a really good corn maze, especially when it's packed with scary people. We're talking about people who get paid to dress up and scare you throughout the corn maze.. This corn maze at 3803 Noble Road is called the Trail of Terrors and it's open through Nov. 1.

2. Free Halloween shake at Steak 'n Shake. Since Saturday is Halloween, how about a free shake for any child under 12 who comes in costume to Steak 'n Shake. If you have no place to go this Saturday, just dress up the kids and entertain them by getting a free delicious shake.

If you plan on staying home this Halloween, here are a few online ideas to enjoy:

1. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. You had me at scary! (LOL) Schuler Books will be reading short stories on Thursday at 9 p.m. Check it out on the Schuler Books Okemos Facebook page.

2. A Haunted History with Dustin Pari. This event will be hosted online this Friday, Oct.30. Capital Area District Libraries will host this lecture with author and paranormal researcher Dustin Pearl. If you would like to hear some ghost stories and more, find this cool event on cadl.org and click register. (LSJ)
