Halloween comes to Waterford
Waterford — The 9th annual Trail of Horror event at 2 Old Barry Road in Quaker Hill runs this weekend, Oct. 11, 12 and 13, from 6:30 to 9:30 each night. The trail features over 15 separate "scares" and over 75 volunteers.
"We just love Halloween and Halloween is not just a kids thing anymore. As adults, we like to have our fun, too," homeowner Joe Harcut said.
Donations will be accepted of nonperishable food items, which will be given to a local food pantry, or money, which will go to Mission 22 Veterans Suicide Awareness. The trail has been professionally treated for mosquitoes for prevention of eastern equine encephalitis, or EEE.
