Also, don't forget the free Halloween fun fixed up for the younger set by the Dade Chamber of Commerce on the Trenton Town Square and at the Dade Public Library. The annual Trick or Treat Alley is from 5:30-8 p.m. on the square, followed by a paid event, the Zombie Walk, for $5 or $10, depending on whether you want help with your makeup, beginning at 8 p.m. Following that is a free outdoor movie.

Remember, too, this weekend is your last chance to contribute to the Dade Coat and Blanket Drive. Collection boxes will be located at the Dade High home football game on Friday and at the Zombie Walk on Saturday, as well as at Citizens Bank, Bank of Dade and the Dade County Sheriff's Department.
