Ludowici and Long County will recognize trick-or-treating from 6-8 p.m., Oct. 27, instead of Oct. 31, and plenty of activities are planned for the weekend.
The Ludowici/Long County Fire Department will host a haunted house, forest, cemetery and hay ride Oct. 26-27 at County Road 261 (Marcus Nobles Road).
The fun will take place from 7:30-11 p.m. both nights, and there is something for all.
There will be a concession stand on the grounds with hot dogs, barbecue sandwiches, nachos and cheese, chips, cup cakes and sodas will be available.
For the younger children, there will be a supervised play area with toys and games.
The cost of admission is $5 for adults, and $3 for children under 12. Proceeds will benefit the fire department and its mission to give Ludowici and Long County the best protection possible.
From Ludowici, take 301 North and go about 19 miles. Turn right onto county road 261 (Marcus Nobles Road) and go another three miles, from here the fire department will be on the left.
After visiting the fire department’s event, visitors can head over to Edward and Denise Walkers’ home for more scary thrills.
The Walkers have their home decked out with another cemetery, an actual hearse and more eerie exhibits.
While trick-or-treating, parents are reminded accompany their children, take a flash light, and only go where they know the area is safe.
Also, parents should make sure to inspect all treats received by their children before any are eaten.
