Keep the scary calories away this Halloween season with fun size candy portions.
October brings out the vampires, goblins, ghosts and those frightful calories. The scary costumes disappear after the holiday is over, unlike the dreaded extra five pounds that we gain after indulging in these yummy treats.
The Greer State Bank Octoberfest is scheduled Saturday from noon to 10 p.m.
The menu will feature German food and desserts, beer and wine, bands on two stages and plenty of kid- and family-friendly entertainment. Food and beverage costs are $1 - $5.
The Friends of Lake Robinson Sixth Annual Day of Celebration is scheduled Sunday, Oct. 13 1-6 p.m. at Verne Smith Park. The park is located next to the Lake Robinson dam off Mays Bridge Road.
The annual celebration helps raise the visibility and character of the Lake Robinson community, projected by the City of Greer as one of two major residential growth points over the next 10 years.
No chili for you. And you. And you . . .
Plate 108 has announced through the Greer Station Association that its Chili Cook Off, scheduled Saturday at Oktoberfest has been cancelled.
