Haunting on the Lake Festival scheduled

Over the past few weeks strange occurrences were happening at Twin Lakes State Park. It seems like part of the park is turning into a real life Twilight Zone with most of the camp guests having experienced these recent phenomena.

With all these occurrences becoming more frequent and with more creatures and ghouls appearing around Goodwin Lake,  it must mean that the Twin Lakes’ annual Haunting on the Lake Festival is fast approaching.

On Friday and Saturday, Twin Lakes State Park, in Green Bay, will transform into a place for families to come together to enjoy fall festivities and to hike a scary haunted trail.

The festival offers activities for every age with family fun crafts and games from 4-10 p.m. both nights.

Exclusively on Saturday, the park campground will open to the public at 4 p.m. for trick or treating, and there will also be a costume parade. So boils and ghouls make sure to have a costume and a trick or treat bag ready.

For the older and more adventurous in the family, the park will once again be turning Goodwin Lake trail into a screaming good time.

This year the one-mile trail will have 12 different scenes of horror that are sure to make participants jump, laugh and scream.

Trips onto the trail will begin at 7 p.m. and the last one will go at 10 p.m.

This year our groups will be limited to 15 persons per group.

Entrance to the park and the festival are free, but there is a fee for hiking the featured trails.
