By Willie Werewolf, Resident Museum paranormal
From the ghostly apparitions of the “Field of Screams” to the twisted, tortured, moan-filled pathways of the “Wailing Woods”, the Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park will put on her best “Haunted House” look for “Scary Halloween in the Park” from 6-8pm this coming Monday Oct 31st, Halloween Day. Dress up the whole family! There’s room for everyone.
Too timid or too young for the really scary bits? The area around the Museum, Events Pavilion and Bistro will be lit up and decorated for those of you not quite ready for the perils of the dark woods.
There’s be plenty of well lit parking in the Museum’s spacious lots. The Sheriff’s Department is graciously handling the parking and providing the large portable area lights for “Scary Halloween”.
There will be lots of candy from Museum volunteers, local businesses, individual volunteers, and from other local organizations as well. They will all be in costume, lined around the Pavilion area. “Coastie”, everybody’s favorite cute little robot boat will be stuttin’ her stuff under the Bistro roof.. Toot, Toot! “Coastie” appears courtesy of the US Coat Guard Auxiliary.
Two hay wagons will offer a constant flow of scream filled rides through Holly Point Nature Parks “Field of Screams”(Wildflower Meadow) and the “Sinister Saplings” of the West woods. Be prepared, ghostly apparitions of all descriptions lurk in the shadows.
