Home Newsroom 209. Scare Up Some Halloween Fun – FOR KIDS

There are a TON of Halloween events happening in Barrington this week and this is one time when I’m going to do my best to share ALL of the GORY DETAILS.  Today, I’m focusing on Halloween events for kids, just because I love this picture of a Barrington dad all dressed up and holding his devil baby.

It’s that wonderful time of year again when all my favorite stores have fresh wild King and Copper River Salmon available! By far my favorite preparation is grilling it on cedar planks - absolutely heavenly!
