An annual Arbala tradition returns again Friday for its two- weekend run, offering thrills, chills and lots of gruesomeness, blood and otherworldly haunts.
Arbala Haunted Woods will run from dusk until midnight for next two Friday and Satur- day nights for anyone brave enough to hop on the hayride that will deposit them at the entrance to the 3/4th-mile, self- guided walking tour. Standing vigil ready to welcome visitors to the frightfully disturbing fun fest is old Grim himself.
Those who have made the ghostly journey in the past won’t want to miss this year’s event. It’s bigger and better than ever — a quarter-mile longer with gads of gory ghouls and fiends, scenes from urban leg- ends and other uniquely created haunts.
In addition to the usual addi- tions and changes, Boy Scouts Venture Crew 69 received a generous donation which included loads of spooky stuff, leftovers from a scary maze that sustained significant weather damage over the last year.
This year, Arbala community residents, Venture Crew 69 and their families and friends will be joined by some BSA Cub Scouts and parents.
The event will feature favorites such as a Little Ones Cemetery, witches cabins, a boat full of ghoulish pirates boat full of ghoulish pirates who are perpetually lost at sea, a space ship complete with evil aliens and an undead bride.
A butcher/chop shop, toxic wasteland, mental ward and Zombie School are joined in the Haunted Woods by a demon baby, plenty of demented clowns, a mummy or two, a funeral parlor Bloody Mary, a pumpkin patch as twisted as Pumpkinhead and maybe even Freddy Krueger.
To make the walk, show up at Arbala Community Center anytime between dusk and midnight Oct. 19, 20, 26 and 27 and pay the fee of $10 per adult and $3 for chil- dren 10 years or younger. Two spe- cial discounts are offered: $8 per person for groups of 12 or more who arrive together; and the home game special offers a $2 discount off adult admission for people who bring their football ticket stub. Arbala Community Center is located on FM 2297 in Arbala. From State Highway 154 south, turn right onto FM 1567; contin- ue to the end of the road. The community center will be just ahead, located just off FM 1567 on FM 2297, just north of Arbala Church. From Interstate 30, turn south onto Arbala Road (FM 2297 south); continue almost to FM 1567 east. The community center will be on the right.
Concessions will also be served at the community center for an additional fee. “I Survived” T- shirts are available for $15 each at the gate.
All proceeds will benefit Boy Scouts Venture Crew 69 and Arbala Community Center.
