As Halloween nears, some Lake Forest residents took their costumes for trial runs this weekend at two events held at Heritage Hill Historical Park: Friday night's Haunt at Heritage Hill and the Saturday afternoon Autumn Harvest Festival.

Patch reader Jim Rosenberg took this photograph at the Harvest festival, where many families donned costumes and children got a chance for some early trick-or-treating.
