The volunteer crew from S.T.A.F.F. Animal Rescue, which benefits from the event, are ready to scare you and make you laugh.
The wagon ride looks to be bigger and better than ever. The spirit atmosphere is brewing and sure to bring lots of witches, goblins and ghouls to roam the 27 acre city park.
There will be lots of zombies and a terrifying pumpkin in addition to the many skits that will emerge from the darkness during the hayride.
A family who presented Michael Jackson's Thriller last year will be coming back again. They will be doing another sure-to-be spectacular routine this year with even more people involved.
Visitors will enjoy some of the hayride's old favorites like The Butcher Shop and The Cemetery along with new skits like The Exorcist and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Before you go
