It’s Haunting Season


Did we scare you? Maybe not, but we know something that will: a visit to Saunder’€™s Farm or a Haunted Walk downtown. Rural or urban chills and thrills’€”your choice.

Saunder’€™s Farm seems to grow exponentially each year, and this one’€™s no exception. The haunting season runs until October 31, and there are nearly 30 different activities ranging along the spookiness spectrum, from the tot-friendly Playful Pirate Ship to the more school-aged Barn of Terror.

There are giant jumping pillows, a pumpkin patch hayride (pick your favorite to take home), puzzle mazes and’€”everyone’€™s favorite’€”the haunted hayride, which promises and delivers ‘€˜mild scares.’€™ A word to the wise: bring your brood during the daytime. The evening activities are rated too terrifying for kids under the age of 10.

This farm produces food along with scares, and serves a range of snacks, sweets and meals all made from local ingredients. You’€™ll find pies, scones, espresso and lattes, pulled pork sandwiches, roasted corn-on-the-cob, hot dogs, hamburgers, candy and caramel apples, and much more. (Note that the farm no longer permits picnic lunches unless you have dietary restrictions.)
