The patch will be open Saturday through the following weekend. Geneva and nearby Oviedo have some fun events planned in the next two weeks leading up to Halloween. Tuesday Oviedo will host its 5th Annual Cemetery Tour (across from Oviedo High School) from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. hosted by The Oviedo Preservation Project (TOPP). Kids are welcome and so is a $2 donation. Call Megan Sladek for more information 407-365-1433 or email email@example.com.
Oct. 23 is the Fall Festival again at the FUMC with arts, crafts, music, kids games, face painting, vendors, pumpkins and great food. If you have something great to sell contact the church for more information-booths are only $10 to rent. Folks are invited to bring perishable food items, wipes and diapers to help with service within our communities.
Then Halloween weekend holds something for everyone with some new events the whole family will enjoy. Focal Point Landscaping once again has taken the reins to host the 2nd Annual Halloween Haunted Hoop House and Trunk or Treating Event, a great event for kids from 4 to 8 p.m., Oct. 30. The deadline is at hand to register your vehicle if you want to be a 'trunker', meaning one who hands out candy and treats from your decorated vehicle. Contact Liz Crowthers 407-349-2200 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org and give the name, make and model of your vehicle. Motorcycles are welcome and prizes for best-dressed vehicle will be awarded.

Twenty-five cent games and a great mix of food, snacks, drinks and will be available for purchase all to raise money for Relay For Life Cancer Awareness event. We understand the Haunted Trail will indeed be scary so don't bring your littlest goblins to this one, cost to travel the trail is $3. Call 407-402-3993 for more information.
On the lighter side is the special Sci-Fi Halloween movie showing Oct. 30 at the Rural Heritage Center. ‘Abbot and Costello meet Frankenstein’ is the featured movie which will begin at 7 p.m. Lots of fun before during and after this movie with prizes for best costume, free popcorn when you come dressed in costume, win free movie tickets, win a Halloween cake and participate in the 50-50 raffle. A fun and not-so-scary time for all-don't forget to come early at 6 p.m. for locally made pizza-$5 per person for the movie, $3 for children under 16 years.
And the culmination of Geneva's All Hallows Eve festivities occurs Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. with the first annual Geneva Cemetery Tour, “Rebels, Heroes & Legends-Under a New Moon”.
Hosted by the Geneva Historical Society the brand new event will be fun for all as you and your neighbors take a guided lantern tour as costumed characters tell you their stories as past residents of Geneva. Just a small donation to the Historical Society is requested and please bring a flashlight to find your way back to the car. If you've never been to the Geneva Cemetery it's a great experience. The huge live oaks with their long, curved limbs and Spanish moss add eerie mystery to the setting-a location filled with history and many ghost stories sits appropriately at the end of Cemetery Road.
