If you still haven’t made plans for Halloween, there is plenty to do right here in Monroe Township. Here are some places you may want to consider, rather than staying home watching scary movies:
- Williamstown High School will hold their award-winning 15th Annual “Haunted High School” on Friday, October 30 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. This is a great chance for local parents to bring their children who are in the fourth grade or younger, out for some safe pre-Halloween fun! Candy and decorations are donated by the students, staff, and even residents of the community.
- Leave the kids at home for this one! The Williamstown VFW Post 1616 is having a Halloween Costume Party on October 31 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. There will be food, beer, music, and prizes! If you call Sandy Kammer at (856) 697-9582 or the VFW Post at (856) 728-0760 in advance, the tickets are $15.00, otherwise they are $20.00 at the door. Call Sandy or the post to find out more!
- Hogbin’s Nursery is holding its first ever haunted hayride! “Hogbin’s Haunted Hollow Hayride” has been in operation since October 2, and will continue until this Friday, Oct. 30, and Saturday, Oct. 31 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Ticket prices are set at $15.00 for adults ages 13+, and $10.00 for children 12 and under. Large crowds need to call ahead! It sounds pretty good, and since it is so close to home – why not?
- FINALLY! The Halloween Parade, after being postponed twice, will take place on this Saturday, October 31! As stated before, the Halloween Parade will include floats, a costume contest, local police and fire departments, candy, and according to Jim Bonder of the Parks and Recreation Committee, there will be a EAGLES PEP BAND! The parade starts in the CVS Parking lot at 7 p.m. and marches down Main St., ending at Church St.
If you can’t make it to these events, don’t worry! There will be plenty of trick-or-treaters knocking on your door Saturday, Oct. 31. Monroe Township has mandated a specified trick-or-treat time from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., but because Halloween is on a Saturday this year, you may get a few early birds. Curfew is strictly enforced, so keep your kids safe and have them inside by curfew! (Curfew is until 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30)
No kids? No candy? Head over to our neighboring township’s Regal Cinemas and United Artist movie theaters. Hollywood has you covered this Halloween with movies like SAW VI, The Stepfather, and Paranormal Activity!
Check back in a few days for ghoulish information!
That’s all I’m saying right now. Until then, happy haunting!
