Halloween Happenings and Hauntings

Everyone is anxiously awaiting Halloween. Decorations are being put out, kids are deciding on their costumes, candy is being bought, and all of the Halloween favorites are being played on our televisions. It can be hard to wait for that one night a year to celebrate dressing up and going out trick-or-treating, or however your spend this spooky holiday, fortunately there are fun events happening all over Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes to get you in the spirit for Halloween night.

If it's a haunted house that will get you in the Halloween spirit, then you're in luck because there are a few to visit and scary is what they do best. Every weekend until Halloween you can find yourself in an abandoned warehouse that is said to be haunted at Haunted Hornell. For only $8 immerse yourself in over 6,000 square feet of terror. Kingsbury Cemetery is back and more terrifying than ever. This year they are featuring two new haunts, The Lady in Black and The Doll Factory. Guaranteed to shock even the biggest horror fans. Purchase tickets online or at the door. Purchase a combo ticket and do both haunts if you dare.
