Some Halloween Fun for everyone

The Kiwanis and Rotary Club out in Holly Springs are sponsoring the 6th Annual Holly Springs Haunted School. The Haunted school has not so scary times for little ghouls and scary times each night.

Haunting at Harris: Halloween Town out at Harris Lake County Park is a fun annual family event. Fun games, pumpkin carving and a hayride out to the town of Buckthorn makes for a great Fall afternoon.
Along with bats and black cats, wolves are another great Halloween animal.

Head over to the NC Zoo for HOWL-O-Ween to learn the howls and tales of the Red Wolves.

October on the Neuse is a fun free fall celebration for the whole family at Anderson Point Park. The celebration includes inflatables, a hay maze and children's carnival games. Remember to bring an uncarved pumpkin for the Pumpkin Decorating Contest.

Ken's Korny Corn Maze, started in 2000, and has amazed and amused visitors since it's first day open. The maze is worked out as early as February where put on paper their ideas to turn six acres of a cornfield into two miles of twists and turns. It takes four men working in the field to make the patterns. The corn is about two feet tall when they start shaping and when they finally finished the first week of July it is head tall. To make the five-foot paths corn stalks are actually pulled out rather than cutting them, to avoid leCome out and see usaving dangerous stubs in the ground. The average time to maneuver the maze take 60-75 minutes. When you get in there, all you see is cornrows and blue sky. You might also hear some passing planes. Many planes often circle around to go over the field again, slowly and lower. You will get out there and learn about farm life and get some exercise, it's a lot of good, family fun. (Greg just worked on a commercial for them with Frankenstein running through the corn and said it looked like fun)

I've gone to Ken's twice. I have ridden the "cool" bus both times.
