Halloween Haunts

This year, we say, "Get down with your creepy self!" After all, if you can't do it in Halloween season, when can you? Here are several ways to get creepin' in Somerset County...

The Somerset County Park  Commission hosts Mischief Night Madness at the Colonial Park putting course on Friday October 26th (rain date 10/27). The event includes tales and a children’s hayride, as well as miniature golf of course! Those who wear a costume will receive a goodie bag, and there will be FREE cider and doughnuts available for all. Tickets cost $8 for a family of 2 and $10 for a family of 3 or more.

If you're still a kid at heart and wish you could dress up this Halloween, look no further than Incognito, a fall house party filled with mischief and mayhem. The event will take place at The Center of Contemporary Art in Bedminster on Saturday October 27th from 7:30pm to 11:30pm. Guests must be 21 years and older, tickets begin at $75 ($85 at the door), and costumes are highly encouraged. Start searching for the perfect disguise today!

What's Halloween without spooky organ music? The Organ Spooktacular combines the two for a spectacular foreshadowing of this creepy holiday. The program includes works from Bach and Chopin and will take place at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church on October 28th at 4pm. Tickets for the event cost $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for students.

 

For real thrill-seekers, Creepy Hollow at Norz Hill Farm will do the "trick". With four attractions including two new “haunts”, you'll definitely be in for a midnight treat. Creepy Hollow tells the story of Elias Atrum who disappeared from the farm in the 1800’s. For those who might need a tamer scare, there are also scenic moonlight hayrides and a HUGE corn maze (bring a flashlight!). Creepy Hollow is now open every Friday and Saturday 7-10pm and select Sundays 7-9pm through October 28. Tickets range from $6 to $30.

Round out your Halloween haunts with a the children's Halloween festival and parade in Somerville. On Sunday October 27th from 12pm-4pm, a portion of downtown Somerville closes so that children can play, adults can walk and bikes can ride. There will be a Halloween parade, live music, kids crafts, free candy and a Halloween craft fair with over 30 vendors!
