Greetings Crystal Lake and Cary Patch readers!
It's going to be one beautiful and busy week!
The forecast calls for summer-like temperatures this week, which should provide optimum float-building weather for students at Cary-Grove and Crystal Lake Central high schools.
Both schools are celebrating the Homecoming week with a football games on Friday, and dances on Saturday, Oct. 5.
The C-G Trojans will host a homecoming parade starting at 9 a.m. Saturday. Crystal Lake Central Tigers will have their parade at 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4.
And while it's homecoming season, it's also the season for running, and 5K events.
The Home of the Sparrow is hosting the first-ever Zombie 5K Run, 1 Mile walk this Saturday at Three Oaks Recreation Area in Crystal Lake. Participants can run dressed as a zombie, with the zombies or among the zombies!
