The Haunt at Sandhill

Calling all ghouls and thrill seekers.  The Haunt at Sandhill opens on Thursday evening, October 23.  The 2014 offering features a Haunted Corn Maze, Moonlit Hayride, Pumpkin Sales, Concessions and more.  Operation hours are from 7PM until 10PM Thursday through Saturday, October 23-25 and October 30-November 1.  Admission is $10 for ages 12 and up, $5 for ages 3-11 and those under 3 are admitted free of charge.  Funds raised by this event assist the Sandhill REC with daily operating expenses and also benefit our community groups that help stage the activity.  The maze is designed to provide startles and scares, not to frighten you to death....we hope.  Come see us.  The Count is waiting for you.
