We need a good number of volunteers for the haunted hike and wagon rides, some actors can stay seated in the historic houses, on porches or on wagons, but others will be needed to walk the trails in the woods. We will go on in light drizzle Sunday, same hours. You may need boots or galoshes for the trail, it can be muddy. Guides will have lanterns and walk from house to house, through barns, up stairs, down dark trails with roots and twigs. Ghouls will have locations along the trails and in buildings, in windows to form shadow play.

Guides and ghouls will get an orientation when you arrive, get help with makeup, masks and costumes/props and be assigned a location. Hot and cold beverages and snacks will be available for all and bathrooms are located in the General Store.

Make it a family tradition to help out! This is a long-running program in the village and some adults remember coming as a kid!

If you want to arrive earlier and help set up props on the trail, we welcome more volunteers!
