The fruit/veggie stand on KLO, just south of Benvoulin, used to have a big maze through the cornfield on Halloween. Complete with scary sounds and things that go bump.

Try city park or Hein Road. There are lots of spooky people there.

This is the only other thing I can find. Maybe call them and ask if they know of other events.

I don't think the KLO corn maze exist anymore. I thought I remembered seeing a for sale sign. I could be wrong though. It would be a shame if it was closed.

I don't know if anybody does a good haunted house anymore.

I remember my sister and her friends used to put one on every year when they were in high-school, it was more old folks orientated, it was actually pretty scary, they used a lot of movie make-up and crazy effects, things used to actually jump out at you. YIKES!

great fun! the good ol' days

An old timer named John used to own the place but I think he passed on a while back. I thought the new owners had done it in the past though.

My Country Garden, that's the name.

Just a slight change in Halloween topics..... How many of you would be into going Corraloweening!? It is always a great time and we can be in costume and just add to your already popular get togethers! Let's roll it around and see if it's a good idea or not. I have not missed one yet!!

The corn maze at the pumpkin patch? Man, we went there two weekends ago, it was great! I don't know if it's the same place that you're talking about, but it was a good day. The corn maze, choosing a pumpkin and hay rides were a nice change of pace. Girlfriends daughter had a blast. I'm looking forward to going with them there again come closer to Christmas to pick out a Christmas Tree. :discodance:

I actually have halloween off this year, so I get to go play "Real Ghostbuster" with the little "Vampiress" (she's pretty specific) and her mom (costume to be determined, lol!) trick-or-treating this year!
