The Davison Township Parks and Recreation is hosting it's popular "Wonderfully Wicked Woods" from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, at the Robert Williams Nature and Historical Learning Center, 10069 Atherton Road, near M-15.

The woods will be alive with a variety of special guests, donning ghoulish garb, to celebrate the afternoon. Ghosts, goblins, witches and ninjas; with maybe a princess, mermaid or superhero, too. Visitors will wander through the variety of events offered up, with sounds of the Halloween spirit whispering through the air.

The woods will be teaming with activities, according to Corey Clark, recreation coordinator, to keep even the most active guests busy. Games, including pumpkin bowling, pumpkin tic-tac-toe, crafts, as well as hayrides to tote guests along a half-mile of winding, groomed trails throughout the woods around the North house.

Dotted along the wooded trail will be approximately 15 stations, hosted by local businesses and organizations offering toys, treats and materials boasting their services. Each vendor has been challenged to decorate the booth, in keeping with the theme of the afternoon.

Being in its third year, new and improved activities are always in the making.

"Every year, we try to add more creative and different things," Clark said. "It's all about kids and their families having fun and being safe."

Pre-registration, as Clark suggests, for participants up to 13 years old, costs $4 for those who live in the 48423 zip code, $6 for non-residents.

The day of the celebration, residents pay $5; non-residents, $7.

Nominal, additional fees may be accrued for some activities.

The free booths for businesses and organizations are still available. To reserve booths, contact Corey Clark at: cclark@davisontwp-mi.org, or call (810) 214-1810.
