1. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, and the Air Zoo is celebrating with a piece of history. Yankee Lady, a Boeing B17G, will visit the Air Zoo on October 3.

The bomber joined the air force in July of 1945, shortly after victory was declared, so it never saw combat.

It's one of only ten in existence that can still fly, and the crew will be offering 30-minute rides, or you can just tour the plane.

Learn more about the bomber and ticket prices at the Air Zoo's website.

2. Bronson Children's Hospital is hosting a run and walk to fundraise for the hospital.

The event usually draws people to their campus, but this year, it will take place virtually over several days.

Participants can pick when and where they participate in the 5K. It's happening right now and runs until Sunday the 27th.

3. Ken-O-Sha Park School got an unexpected visitor this week. Grand Rapids Public Schools posted a picture on Facebook of it standing in the hallway saying "It looks like this buck couldn't wait to come back to school."

They said that Ken-O-Sha Park is one of the only schools with motion-activated doors, but the deer didn't use them, breaking through a window to get in around 8 Thursday morning.

The deer was in the building for about 20 minutes before they were able to let it roam out safely.

4. Krispy Kreme has proclaimed today Sports Spirit Day. In its honor, the donut chain is offering a deal to sports fans.

Krispy Kreme says it's selling a dozen of its original glazed donuts for $5, but that's only if you are wearing some gear representing your favorite sports team.

The chain says it can be anything from a jersey or t-shirt to a complete team uniform. It can also be team gloves, helmets, or hats.

5. This year has been far from sweet, so Reese's is embracing the salty side of life and adding pretzels to its peanut butter cups.

The candy giant is nervous about how COVID-19 will affect Halloween this year so they've lined up some tasty treats to look forward to after the holiday.

The Hershey's candy brand says the new treat will hit stores in November and they'll be a permanent addition to the Reese's lineup.
