Halloween Happenings Haunted Trail

Friday, October 15, 2021

The Haunted Halloween Trail is a quarter-mile long filled with fright and drama! Ghosts, goblins, witches, and creatures are ready to frighten those attending!

Kenton County Parks & Recreation (KCP&R) is hosting its annual frightening Halloween Happenings Haunted Trail on Friday, October 15th from 7 P.M. until 10 P.M. at Middleton-Mills Park. Admission and parking will be available at the football field.

The Haunted Halloween Trail is a quarter-mile long filled with fright and drama! Ghosts, goblins, witches, and creatures are ready to frighten those attending! The recommended age is six years old and above, but it is at the parent’s discretion whether or not their child is age appropriate for the Haunted Halloween Trail. The purpose of the trail is to scare.

Admission is either a non-perishable food or personal care item donation for Be Concerned OR $1 per person. It’s a creepy bargain! 

At 10 P.M. the gate at the entrance will close. Everyone in line before this time will be able to walk the trail. There is a shelter house at the end of the Haunted Trail where survivors may wish to sample complimentary Bat’s Blood (punch) served by Ghostesses. Concessions will be available through Northern Kentucky Baseball. There will be a hayride shuttle that will take participants back to their vehicles. 

Middleton-Mills Park is located at 3415 Mills Rd., Covington, KY 41015. For more information, please contact Rhonda Ritzi or call the Parks & Recreation office at (859) 525-PLAY (7529). Follow Kenton County Parks & Recreation on Facebook (@KentonCountyParks).

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Kenton County Parks & Recreation is in need of volunteers to help set up and work the trail the night of the event to help make it as spooktacular as possible! Ghosts, goblins, witches and creatures are requested to help frighten those attending!

KCP&R is requesting adult volunteers. Children, over the age of 13, with adults are permitted but the adult MUST remain with the child throughout the event. 

KCP&R tries to make this a theatre production and the spookier the better. Even if you do not want to haunt the trail, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer. Areas that need help include:

  • Setting up and work the event
  • Directing traffic and parking
  • Managing the haunters and sound effects on the trail
  • Decorating the shelter house and setting up the graveyard
  • Managing check-in

Even if you’ve haunted the trail or volunteered in the past, we need you to confirm your participation.
