Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The event is held at Evelyn Greer Park which is located at 8200 Southwest 124th Street in Pinecrest.

Tickets are just $20 and include admission to the Haunts, a drink ticket, raffle ticket, and a coupon book. There will be a costume contest (costumes are not required, but encouraged) with prizes and multiple categories such as Best Couple, Scariest, Most Techy, etc. Vintage B&W horror movies will be shown on the lawn (also included). Drinks and food will be for sale in the park and the Jaunt will take place circling the adjacent block (see map). You can go through the Jaunt course as many times as you wish. Get a “Ghoulish Group” of 20 friends together and save 20% ($320 instead of $400 = $16 instead of $20).
