Central Islip residents have host of Halloween hauntings

October 22, 2013 by  

Residents of Central Islip, a Long Island community, are about to be surrounded by a number of ghosts, vampires, zombies and other things that go bump in the night. They can take their choice of Halloween activities in the area.

For years, the Bayville Fire Department (BFD), located about 21 miles from Central Islip, has welcomed visitors to its Haunted Firehouse, which has become well-known throughout the region. Superstorm Sandy has made it impossible for the BFD to put on the attraction this year, but has noted that some of its friends have got together and agreed to give fans of the Haunted Firehouse discounts to other attractions instead. They will also be giving some of their proceeds back to the BFD.

One attraction in Bayville recommended by the firefighters is the ‘Halloween Beach Front Spooktacular’ being held at the Crescent Beach Club in Bayville; the club and the Bayville Fire Department are co-sponsors of the event. There will be a buffet dinner, DJ, costume contest, and top shelf bar. The event is limited to adults over 21, and tickets, which are $65, are available online. The Spooktacular is this Friday, October 25, from 8:00 pm to 1:00 am.

For those Central Islip residents who prefer to get away from Long Island for the evening, Blood Manor in New York City is also donating part of its proceeds to the Bayville Fire Department.

The BFD could work with a poster printing company to announce these alternate events, and encourage patrons to attend.
