There are always different events and activities happening at and around the Cortland County area on the weekends for people to participate and enjoy.

Here are some of the events happening this weekend in Cortland County:


Today is Halloween and even with there being scattered rain showers all throughout this evening, we will still be expecting to see many trick-or-treaters in the evening asking for some sweet treats.

Kids will be in their costumes walking around Cortland County, knocking on doors in search for candy.

Make sure to bring your umbrellas and or rain jackets, if you are planning on walking around trick-or-treating this evening.
