Clifton’s Haunted Trail, an annual creepy walk through the woods, is this Saturday.
Visitors view over 20 haunting skits and scenes as they walk through Clifton’s 8-acre park.
“There are some scenes focused on spine tingling eeriness,” said Sydney Sawyer, one of the event’s organizers. “There are others that have a scare factor to them.”
Zombies, witches, and classic horror movie sets are some of the skits to be included. Volunteers and students from Robinson, Centreville, and Woodson High School students put on the skits.
In addition to the trail, visitors can also watch scary movies on large screens at the entrance. Hot apple cider, baked goods, and pizza will also be available, Sawyer said.
This is the 14th year for the event, which typically draws several hundred people.
“We do encourage people to come early because it gets crowded toward the end,” Sawyer said. “There’s more spookiness to it when you are alone.”
Sturdy shoes are recommended for the walk. While there are no age requirements for the trail, it’s recommended for children over 8 years old, Sawyer said.
Tickets, available at the door, are $15 for adults and $10 for children under 10 years old. Parking will be available on Clifton’s main street and at Clifton Elementary School on 7010 Clifton Road. A hayride will take visitors to the park.
The event is from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
