If you like a good scare, you’ll soon have the opportunity to take a tour of a Haunted Trail.
Mike Young, program director for the Oxford Park Commission, said the Haunted Trail is a special event that occurs each year at Halloween organized by the University of Mississippi Recreation Administration program in a partnership with OPC.
It will be held at Avent Park on Oct. 28-29 from 7-10 p.m.
The Goblin’s Egg Hunt will be on Oct. 29 at 6 p.m. on the ballfield at Avent Park.
“For over 20 years, students have helped plan, program, evaluate and act as cast members in the event,” Young said.
“In all the scenes along the forest, everyone will be in full costume. You can find anything from werewolves to all sorts of monsters that will keep you startled.”
Young said revenue from the event is split between the Recreation Administration Majors Association and the OPC.
Funds generated by the event support student professional development and student association activities.
Young said the event has been around for 26 years.
“We hope that our Lafayette-Oxford-University community will come out and enjoy the many frightening scenes along the Avent Park trail,” Young said.
Admission is $5 and adults must accompany children under age 10.
