Park to offer ‘Haunted Trail’
Published 12:00 am, Sunday, October 8, 2017
Harrybrooke Park in New Milford will present its fourth annual Haunted Trail fundraising event Oct. 13-14 and 20-21 from 6 to 10 p.m. each day.
To create an even larger community event this year, Harrybrooke is partnering with the New Milford Lions Club, Northville Volunteer Fire Department, the Knights of Columbus, The Children’s Center and the New Milford United Methodist Church.
Admission is $15 per person, with tickets available in advance at Universe.com/scarrybrooke.
Advance ticket sales allows guests to bypass the regular admission line, thereby speeding up the process.
“This event is not recommended for those with a weak heart, inability to walk a long distance (almost the entire park), or for those who cannot be near a strobe light,” advised Billy Buckbee, executive director at the park.
The event is also not recommended for children under 12, “as it can be truly terrifying in parts,” Buckbee said.
“The Haunted Trail has been good and very scary in the past, but each organization has stepped up their game this year,” Buckbee noted. “It will be really very scary and take you into new areas of the park.”
“Parents should truly think twice before bringing young children here,” he said. “It may cause nightmares in adults even. It goes beyond scary and does creepy better than any Halloween event I’ve ever seen.”
