Ghost Walk, Pumpkin Festival, Classic Vampire Flick – Weekend Happenings
You have a ton of choices for a good time this weekend in South Jersey, especially if you are in the Halloween spirit a little early.
We put together a listing of some of our seasonal favorite hayrides and haunted attractions along with one-day only events happening this weekend that celebrate fall and Halloween.
Lite Rock Meteorologist Dan Zarrow says we will have temperatures that will feel much more like fall than our recent summer-like weather, so hopefully that gets you in the mood. Have a great weekend!
