A pricier Halloween haunts Stern Grove this year

A haunted house and hay rides will take over Stern Grove again this year for the 2nd annual Scare Grove Halloween event, but all of you costumed ghouls and goblins will have to pay a little more this time.

Last year admission was $5 and it was so successful that the Recreation and Park Department had a similar event for Easter.

However, this year’s event, scheduled for Oct. 22 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., will set Halloween revelers back $8, which according to Rec and Park will pay for maintaining its open spaces.
