Scary Tales taking over community park
October 8, 2013 by James
Popular children’s stories will be transformed into ‘Scary Tales’ for the 13th annual Haunted Trails at the Crown Valley Community Park taking place in Laguna Niguel. The yearly event transforms the local park into an eerie wonderland for just a few nights each October. A guided walk through the park becomes a spooky adventure through a maze, tent network, and graveyard.
Groups of 10 -13 brave attendees will be escorted through the park. With this year’s scary fairy tale theme, sightings of familiar characters can be expected. However, these will not be the kid-friendly heroes and heroines visitors remember; ghoulish versions of Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood, and other characters will be personally haunting each group of walkers. Due to the creepy nature of the Haunted Trails event, it is not recommended for children under the age of eight.
The walk will take place for three nights, starting on Thursday, October 24. It will run from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm on Thursday, and 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm Friday and Saturday. Tickets are $10 each, and organizers proclaim there will be no refunds for “scaredy-cats”. Although the nights are Halloween-themed, attendees wearing costumes will not be allowed to enter. Comfortable walking shoes are highly recommended, and more information is available online.
With a community event this like, a local flyer printing campaign can be the best way to garner attention and spread information. On this occasion, the Haunted Trail organizers chose to promote their event with a supernaturally chilling flyer.
