Here's what's going on in town today

Good day and happy United Nations day.

You don’t need to head out of town for cider and hay rides this week, because the City of Lansing brings some fall fun downtown Monday for Trick or Treat on the Square. The event features trick or treating at Washington Square businesses, as well as hay rides, face painting and performances by fire dancers. Police and fire vehicles and the Lansing Lugnuts’ Big Lug make an appearance, and YMCA hosts a craft-making station. In case of rain, the event will be postponed until Tuesday. 5-7:30 p.m. FREE. 100 and 200 blocks of South Washington Square, Lansing. (517) 487-3322, trickortreatonthesquare.org.
