Join us every Friday and Saturday evening in October from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Middlesex County 4-H Center, on the corner of Cranbury and Fern Roads in East Brunswick.
There is a $4 admission fee for each event, the proceeds of which go to fund 4-H’s next big event, Project GIFT.
Project GIFT is a charitable holiday shopping event that takes place in December. Proceeds from the House of Horrors allow the 4-H teens to buy presents and supplies to host 200 limited-resource families at a holiday event where they can “shop” for gifts for their children at no cost to themselves.
Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, Chair of the Business Development and Education Committee, said: “The 4-H Teen Council has a lot to be proud of. I know they enjoy putting together and running this event, and those of us that enjoy the scary side of Halloween will have a great time attending and making Project GIFT happen.”
Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios agreed: “Events like this prove that the 4-H Teen Council realizes that doing good can become part of every holiday. I hope many residents will attend the event and contribute to the fun of Halloween and the goodwill of Project GIFT.”
Along with the Haunted House and Hayride there will be less spooky activities for kids such as pumpkin decorating and remote control car demonstrations. The 4-H Tiki-Hut will also be open for snacks and Halloween treats.
