Don’t let the warm fuzzy kiddy decorations from the safety of your car fool you, if you want the candy it’s a quarter mile through the haunted swamp! As you follow the luminaries towards the woods and cross the bridge into the swamp, the darkness will surround you and the cold swamp air will chill you to your bones, oh by the way, they will be waiting for you!” That’s how the Junkins Haunted Estate describes the walk through the woods you’ll take. This is not the haunted house/trail you want to take your 6-year-old to, unless you have a very brave 6-year-old. However, a not-scary walk will be 5-6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 30.
