WOODBURY – The Woodbury Lions Club has announced that their 28th Annual Haunted Hayride and 3D Haunted Barn will take place over four days in October: the 19th, 20th, 26th, and 27th, starting from Mitchell School in Woodbury, CT.
Once again, guests can expect to climb onto tractor-towed wagons and ride around some of the spooky fields and cemeteries in Woodbury. If you’re lucky, you may see some of the ghosts, ghouls, zombies and other denizens of the dark that only come out this time of year.
With another year, there’s another new theme for the 3D Haunted Barn. This year’s is especially spooky, so pay attention to your surroundings as you wander through the maze—you wouldn’t want to be caught in a dead-end.
Tickets for the hayride are $12 for adults and $6 for children under ten. Tickets sales start each night at 6:30PM at Mitchell School until 9PM. Refreshments are available for sale at the school.
Besides the evening rides, the Lions will also hold a special “Children’s Hayride” on October 20 from 1PM to 3PM for younger children for whom the regular hayride may be too frightening. The wagons start at Mitchell School and go through some of the quieter streets in town, and stop at the “pumpkin patch” where children can select a pumpkin to take home. Tickets for this ride are $4 for adults, $3 for children. In the case of rain, the children’s hayride will take place on October 27.
The Lions use the proceeds from the Hayride, as well as from their annual car show, to award scholarships to graduating Nonnewaug high school seniors. This year, local students going on to college received twenty-thousand dollars in financial aid from the Lions.
