Last chance for haunted happenings

If you want to participate in local Halloween happenings, this is your last weekend to do so. The Jacob Scare Memorial Haunted Woods, a haunted woods on Olean Road, continues Friday and Saturday. The funds for the haunted woods are being raised for the Jacob Vogel Memorial Fund, an endowment fund within the Ripley County Community Foundation to benefit the fund. On Friday, Tyson Activity Center has a Haunted Gym from 8 to midnight and proceeds benefit programming at the center. There is also Batesville’s Fear Factory, a haunted old coffin and furniture factory, which is open Friday and Saturday.

There’s plenty of Halloween decorations to view around the county, such as this painted hay bale pictured left.
