MT. MORRIS TWP. — In lieu of its traditional Halloween celebration, Crossroads Village in Mt. Morris Township will be hosting Halloween Ghosts & Goodies drive-thru nights throughout October.
Starting this Saturday, families can take a fun-filled drive through the village and enjoy a variety of Halloween displays and exhibits. Crossroads Village will be open for drive-thru visitors on Fridays and weekends this month from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Halloween Ghosts & Goodies will culminate with drive-thru nights on Oct. 28-30 and a finale on Halloween Night, Oct. 31.
“Now that kids are quarantined and can’t go to school, we knew it was important that they have a safe activity for Halloween,” said Barry June, Genesee County Parks and Recreation Director. “This is a great opportunity for people to get out of the house and do something safe and fun.”
June said that Genesee County Parks staff and volunteers have created detailed displays and themes for visitors to enjoy as they journey through the village. Guests will drive through sections like the Haunted Forest, Skeletonville and Pumpkinville, passing by reenactors in costume and rows of colorful character props.
Even though visitors won’t be able to ride the Huckleberry Ghost Train Express this year, they’ll still get to see a haunted train wreck display along the village’s exit route.
June said that guests should prepare for possible lengthy wait times prior to entering the village, due to anticipated high turnouts for each night. The drive-thru itself will take around 30 minutes to complete. Guests must stay inside their vehicles at all times.
The cost to enter the village for a drive-thru will be $20 per vehicle. Each guest will receive a complimentary Ghost & Goodies treat bag. No passes or coupons will be accepted, and no advance passes will be given out.
