Following the Jefferson Township Recreation Department’s annual Fall Festival event on Saturday, October 22, Jefferson Recreation proudly presents the 28th annual Halloween Haunted House at Camp Jefferson, 81 Weldon Road, Lake Hopatcong – rain or shine.
Spooktacular spirits will inhabit the completely transformed Community Lodge where eerie scenarios will unfold in dark and scary rooms causing you to laugh and scream your way through a diverse gathering of ghosts, ghouls, serial killers, random creatures, and things that go bump in the night! Spirits will be roaming the outside grounds as well, and DJ Earl will be playing some bloodcurdling music for the monster mash to get the ghouls dancing. If you dare, take a haunted hay ride (a nominal fee) through the dark and mysterious woods and hold on so you don’t jump out of your skin along the road!
There will be a matinee performance (a less frightening children’s hour suggested for 5th graders and younger) from 4 to 5:30 pm on Saturday, October 22 with regular evening peformances from 7 to 9:30 pm. On Sunday, October 23, another less frightening children’s hour matinee will run from 4:30 to 5:30 pm with regular evening performances from 6 to 8 pm. Mama’s Road Kill Café will be offering eats and refreshments at a nominal price.
