Come on over and have a howlingly good time! The Third Annual Halloween Fest and Haunted Hikes are scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 17 at the Garden City Bird Sanctuary opposite 181 Tanners Pond Road.
The games and festivities begin at 4 p.m. and following the 5:30 p.m. costume parade, the escorted haunted hikes begin at sundown. Tickets are $10 per person, (children 2 and under are exempt). Enjoy arts and crafts, decorate your own holiday pumpkin, win prizes for games and contests, have a potato sack race or mummy wrapping, get your face painted and enjoy fine cocoa, coffee and hamburgers available for purchase.
The haunted hikes are entertaining and educational. Choose “scary” or “not so scary” and watch out for ghosts, goblins, spider webs or whether the water you are offered to drink is contaminated or not. There may be the ghost of Mark Twain or Mr. Death warning about global warming. The rain date is Sunday, Oct. 18 from 3:30 to 8 p.m. For tickets, call 326-1720.
