NORTH MANCHESTER, Ind. (Oct. 16, 2003) - Ghosts and
goblins are invading Manchester College. On Tuesday, Oct. 28 and
Wednesday, Oct. 29, the college's12th annual Haunted Forest opens to
anyone willing to take a little fright.
The scare runs from 6:30 to 9 p.m., at $2 per
person. Organized by the Manchester College Office of Volunteer Services
and North Manchester Parks and Recreation, the maze of ghouls and demons
is bound to make a spooky impression.
In Haunted Forest tradition, Manchester College
students, faculty and staff will dress in creepy garb to act out scary
scenes for tours of victims on the grounds of Tall Oaks. Visitors should
come to the Schwalm Hall parking lot to begin the tour.
"We are making some really neat costumes," said
senior Alicia B. South of Auburn, Ind. "The kids should really like it.
It's a great Halloween activity."
Ghosts, goblins, witches, wolves and other dark
creatures of the night will lurk along the path. Despite the murky
content, Haunted Forest is appropriate for any age and all are welcome.
