SAVE THE DATE: Oct 24, 2012 The Haunted Jaunt

October 1st, 2012 Written By Carol Pawley

Save the date for the 1st annual The Haunted Jaunt, a Halloween-themed Haunted House/Street Party.

To be held on Wednesday, October 24, 2012 from 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm at Ponce Circle Park, Coral Gables, the “Jaunt” will feature a walk-through street fair experience in which each sponsor will have its own “haunted house” on the streets next to the Park.

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).
