A Good Scare At The Haunted Village #BeUtahful

It was a dark and stormy night.... The Quaker girl in the long black dress and bonnet was silently standing at the side of the house. Just standing there, no expression on her deathly pale face. When we passed, she followed. It was almost as if she were an apparition. That's when the monkey's started scampering around us, shrieking and jumping over the stair bannister, terrifying me, but mostly Hannah! She screamed and grabbed her boyfriend's hand even tighter!  As we left that house to move on to the next house in the village, I looked back, only to see the Quaker girl, watching us leave. 
Hannah, Gaven, and Edison
And that's how it went the whole way, from house to historical house. You never knew when something might jump out, where something would just amaze you with its creepiness. But it was so much fun! 
I definitely got my Halloween on last weekend in the 'Haunted Village' at 'This Is The Place Memorial Park'. By day it is the home of 'Little Haunts,' where the children run, play, ride ponies, pan for gold, and have a costume parade, where the candy canon shoots out loads of taffy! In addition, the local villagers throw out even more candy, so everyone has plenty! Little Haunts is open for two more days, the 24th and 31st, 10 am - 5 pm, both days are Saturdays.
If you mention A GAL NEEDS...when purchasing admission tickets to Little Haunts, you'll receive $2.00 off each ticket!
But come nighttime, the park belongs to the ghouls and things that go bump (literally) in the night. It's such a contrast!
The Haunted Village is open Wednesday - Saturday, through Halloween, with tickets going on sale at 6:30 pm. Gates open for the fun at 7:30 pm. There is a guide to welcome you and show you to your first house in the village. You walk from there through the rest of the town in about 90 minutes. The train is waiting at the last house to take you back. So much fun! Admission is $20 per person (so worth it) and make sure to print off your $5.00 coupon at their website!

Don't live in Utah? I found a great list of Fall Festivals that are from 25 other states! You should check it out, just in case!
