‘Scary Halloween’ at maritime park on Halloween
by Bill Powell
From the ghostly apparitions of the “Field of Screams” to the twisted, tortured, moan-filled pathways of the “Wailing Woods,” the Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park will put on her best Haunted House look for “Scary Halloween in the Park” from 6-8 p.m. on Halloween, Thursday, October 31. Put on that costume! Dress up the whole family! There’s room for everyone.
For those too timid or too young for the really scary bits, the new Events Pavilion, courtyard, fountain and dolphin garden areas will be lit up and decorated for all who are not quite ready for the “perils” of the fields or the darkling woods.
There will be lots of candy from museum volunteers, local businesses, individual volunteers, and from other local organizations as well. They will all be in costume, lined around inside the Events Pavilion.
There’s also plenty of well-lit parking in the museum’s spacious lots. The Middlesex Sheriff’s Office is graciously providing large portable area lights and manpower for “Scary Halloween.”
Two hay wagons will offer a constant flow of fun and scream-filled rides through Holly Point Nature Park’s “Field of Screams” (Wildflower Meadow). Be prepared—ghastly, ghostly apparitions of all descriptions lurk in the dark shadows. Stephen and Randy Blue have been hard at work designing and installing exciting new illusions for the “Fields.”
Volunteers who wish to help with the festivities should call the museum office at 776-7200.
