Halloween fun

Goshen-area communities have scheduled trick-or-treat hours on Oct. 30 — Nappanee and Ligonier — and on Oct. 31 — Goshen, Middlebury, Millersburg and Bristol.

But there are a number of other Halloween activities that are ongoing in October.


Judgment House — Grace Community Church will host Judgment House Oct. 23, 24 and 25 from 7 to 10:30 p.m. and Oct. 27 from 6 to 11 p.m. This is a free interactive, “uncensored,” real-life drama concerning life, death and the afterlife.

Walk-ins are welcome, but reservations are recommended. Children should be at least 10 years old to enter. For reservations, call 533-7546.

Grace Community Church is located just south of Goshen Middle School at C.R.s 36 and 21.


Field of Screams – Every Friday and Saturday until Halloween from dusk to 10 p.m., weather permitting, families are invited to join the haunted fun at The Field of Screams, which is located at 10817 N. 1000 East, Cromwell.

Halloween Carnival — On Oct. 27, there will be a Halloween Carnival at Syracuse Community Center.

The community center and Lakeland youth center are sponsoring the event and looking for volunteers. Call 457-3440 or 457-3055 for more information.


Fright Factory — The annual haunted Fright Factory has a new location this year and will be held at West Park Pavillion.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?
