October is spooky season! If you are looking to get your freight on this weekend, South Jersey has a ghoulish assortment of really scary or just family-friendly attractions. Here are five of our favorites…

This family friendly attraction is on Burton Avenue in Northfield at Birch Grove Park.  The hayride runs through the month of October (specific dates can be found through the link above) and costs $5.
 Bring the whole family out to Buterhof’s Shady Brook Farm for a corn maze!  Located in Egg Harbor City, the corn maze runs through October 31st.
 If you want to be scared, this is the haunted attraction for you!  Located in Winslow Township, Miller’s is sure to scare the pants right off of you!
Located in Galloway, Sahl’s Farm has a corn maze, a pumpkin patch and a hayride!  Family friendly, too!
 The Scullville Terror in the Junkyard Hayride and Maze is not for the faint of heart!  If you want to shoot zombies, this is the haunted attraction for you!
