Spooktacular Season

Oh, the weather outside may not be frightful, but there’s still a sense of spookiness in the air that’s sure to provide a playful scare.



Oh, the weather outside may not be frightful, but there’s still a sense of spookiness in the air that’s sure to provide a playful scare. Halloween in Central Jersey is the season of ghouls and ghosts, cornstalks and pumpkins, and hours of family fun. Here’s a list of events and festivals where you can let the season’s spirit take over.

Think you’re brave? Muster up the courage for a night at the Schaefer Farms Frightfest in Flemington. The hair-raising adventure includes the Trail of Terror, Massacre Maize and Carnival of Chaos. Tours run every weekend through Oct. 30. Tickets begin at $20 and are available at schaefersfrightfest.com. Because of the level of terror, the event is not recommended for children.

If you’re looking for a thrill but don’t want to scare your pants off, the Haunted Woods of Old Bridge is the experience for you. Spooky displays and scarecrows—constructed by local scouts—are scattered throughout the woods and can be viewed in daylight on weekend afternoons in October. Don’t stray too far because zombies, ghouls and goblins come out at night. Admission is free, but children should be accompanied by an adult. Get all the info at haunted-woods.com.

There are plenty of daytime family activities and nighttime adventures at K & S Farms in East Windsor. The aptly named Sunshine Acres is filled with pumpkin picking, a corn maze, hayrides, cider, caramel apples and more activities for all ages. Once the sun goes down, the Field of Terror comes alive with the “Killer Kornfield,” haunted hayrides and more. Visit fieldofterror.com for schedules and tickets for the Field of Terror. Evening events are intended for teens and adults.
