Whether you’re looking for some family time, or time away from them, there are plenty of local options this weekend.

Leave the kids at home, grab some friends and hit up Spooky Singo at Manhattan Brewing Company or the Pie and Beer Tasting at Auntie Mae’s Parlor Thursday night.

Take the family to A&H Farm on Friday night for a not-spooky corn maze and s’mores, or take them to the free showing of Luca over at Brigg’s.

Of course, the whole family can go to the K-State Football game on Saturday, but a 6:30 p.m. kickoff could make for a late night for little ones.
