A member of Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers adjusts his hat while preparing for a previous year’s Haunted Hayride at Remington Park. This year’s attendees are warned: beware … and come if you dare to the Haunted Hayride beginning at 6 p.m. Friday. This event is free to all DoD ID card holders. Parental discretion is advised for some of the evening’s offerings. Children 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.

October often sends Families looking for spooky entertainment, but it may difficult to find something that is appropriate for younger children and teens, as well as for adults. For more than seven years, Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation’s Parks and Recreation, Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers and Child, Youth and School Services Youth Center have partnered to present the Haunted Hayride at Remington Park.
This year’s hayride will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday.
Creepy things will be there to scare you as you ride through the park on one of the tractor-drawn trolleys. Then walk through the haunted pavilion and cemetery before scurrying across the spooky bridge to Lloyd’s Landing, where you can check out the creepy animal presented by the New York State Zoo at Thompson Park, Watertown.
Additional treats include group photos, snacks and drinks, and a bonfire for marshmallow roasting.
Parking for this event will be at Magrath Sports Complex, where patrons can catch the shuttle bus to Remington Park beginning at 6 p.m. with return transportation throughout the evening.
This event is free to all DoD ID card holders. Parental discretion is advised for some of the evening’s offerings, and children 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
For additional information, call 772-8222.
