FRIGHT NIGHT returns to Hall Twp’s Echo Bluff Park
At first look, Echo Bluff Park appears to be a lovely wooded park away from the hustle of city life, a peaceful retreat in our fast-paced world. Fifty weeks a year, this is a true statement. BEWARE: this idyllic repose is anything but peaceful during FRIGHT NIGHT.
During those two weekends, this former Girl Scout camp is transformed into a haunted haven of ghosts, goblins, zombies and the living dead! (Warning: those brave enough to venture down the Trails of Terror may suffer from recurrent Frightmares.)
If the trails aren’t challenge enough, Fright Night participants can take part in Ghostly Paintball Attack. Ever try to shoot a moving target? Ghosts will be darting across our Paintball Field and for a nominal fee, you have the opportunity to test your skill.
A Smiling Pumpkin Trail has been designed for our younger guests. A guide will lead you down a maze of pumpkins and spider webs - which is far less scary than the Trails of Terror! Or, visit our Schoolhouse Crafty Web and create a Holiday craft as a remembrance of Fright Night 2015. Boogie Man Bingo will also be a fun option for those who attend Fright Night!
Fright Night 2015 at Hall Twp.’s Echo Bluff Park is from 7 pm – 10 pm. Entrance fee is $5 per person, with children under 3 FREE!
(Need service hours? Fright Night planners are seeking students to act as ghosts, zombies and guides. Call 815 447-2115 or 815-252-3894 to volunteer! A Fright Night meeting will be held at Echo Bluff on Saturday, October 3 at 1 pm.)
