Haunted Happenings!

The summer heat is finally fading, leaves are changing color, and the sun is rising later and setting sooner. These are sure signs that it’s time to turn our thoughts toward the spooky sights and sweet treats of Halloween! MPHPL has a lot of fun planned for you and your family this year. Each location is offering Halloween programs, and we have events for all ages.
