EAST BRUNSWICK – Complete with scary scenery, walkways and rooms, the 4-H Youth Development Program will hold its annual haunted house just in time for Halloween.

“The haunted house has a variety of different rooms and walkways that focus on the fears that most people have,” 4-H Agent/Associate Professor Laura Bovitz said. “The haunted hayride will also include a variety of different stops with haunted scenery and actors.”

Bovitz said 4-H has run the fundraiser for more than 10 years as an effort of the 4-H Teen and Junior Council leadership clubs. She said the 4-H program has more than 115 adult volunteer leaders and about 75 teen leaders.

“4-H Junior and Teen Council run a service learning project called Project GIFT every year for the past 20 years. This event provides a free day of holiday shopping for limited resource families in the county. 4-H collaborates with county agencies that work with families in need and invites them to the 4-H Center, allowing them to actually shop for holiday gifts for their children for free,” she said. “There is bus transportation, childcare, refreshments and gift wrap. The event reached over 135 parents, and 350 youth from 13 different agencies annually. The Haunted House and Hayride provide funds to support the toys and other items purchased for this event.”

The haunted house will be open from 7-10:30 p.m. every Friday and Saturday during October at the Middlesex County Fairgrounds, 645 Cranbury Road, East Brunswick.

Tickets are $5 each for the hayride and haunted house, or $8 for a combo ticket which allows residents to take part in both, according to Bovitz.
