'Tis "the season" to count down the days until "the season". Those that are eagerly awaiting the commencement of this year's holiday festivities, or those just plain distraught over this week's spell of Indian summer, have quite a few events to keep them occupied this weekend.
Saturday's patrons will see their proceeds going to Durham's Ronald McDonald House, with Sunday having a Duke vs. UNC theme. Now in its thirty-eighth year, this iteration of the Jaycees Haunted House is making its home in the Shops at Northgate (1720 Guess Rd.) Hours are 6:30pm-11:00pm all three nights.
Saturday kicks off with the seventh annual Cree Habitat for Humanity Halloween Bike Ride. Saturday’s event is one of two annual bike rides that benefit Durham Habitat for Humanity. As in years past, this year’s ride will offer three distances, with each route beginning and ending at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The 31-, 62-, and 100- mile routes all feature full support from the Durham County Sherriff’s Office.
Pre-registration is now closed, but walk-up riders can register beginning at 7:30AM for a $45 fee. Those looking for a preview of the routes can find them, along with more information, on Habitat’s web site.
