The Southington Drive-In Committee announces its annual Halloween Festival on Saturday, Oct. 24, starting at 2 p.m. The afternoon consists of hauntingly awesome family activities followed by a double feature on the big screen.
For one carload admission price, festival-goers will be treated to haunted hayrides, pony rides, touch-a-truck, trunk or treating, apple launching, pumpkin bowling, pumpkin painting, face painting and apple pie-eating contests. Once the sun sets, they’ll be treated to Disney’s Hocus Pocus followed by the classic chiller, The Shining.
A brief intermission between the two movies will allow families to leave the park prior to the showing of the R-rated late movie. Additionally, carloads will be allowed entry right up until the showing of The Shining and need not attend the day-time activities.
Be sure to decorate your vehicle for the Trunk-or-Treating event and remember to bring treats to hand out to the parade of costume-clad children who will make their way from trunk to trunk collecting candy.
This year’s Halloween Festival is hosted by the Southington Lions Club, Southington Community Cultural Arts, and the Southington LEAF program.
Admission is $15 for each Southington carload and $20 for non-resident carloads. For more information visit www.SouthingtonDrive-In.org.
