Woodland Park was invaded by ghosts, goblins and assorted scary characters on the evening of October 20, 2009. About 600 participated.Halloween in the Park began at 6:00 p.m. and concluded at 9:30 p.m.
Every 15 minutes, two hayride trailers took turns collecting riders for the very scary ride to be frightened by a variety of terrifying citizens of the night.
After the horrific experience, they escaped at the Roosevelt Avenue end of the pavilion where they were treated to refreshments.
The pavilion fireplace waswarm and glowing, with a museum of famous horror movie props displayed.
Heights resident, Al DeAngelo, of "Night-Mares Haunted Attractions" in Montvale (www.Night-Mares.com), and Rob Brady "set-up" and operated fright stations.
The Recreation Department sponsored the event and supplied refreshments.
The first few rides were less scary, so it was recommended that younger children sign up for the earlier time slots. ###
