Bryant Boys and Girls Club will be selling hot dogs and hot chocolate. They will also receive all proceeds from the Munchkinland and share in the proceeds from the haunted trail ride.

The haunted hayride on the trail begins at dark and will end at 9:30 p.m. The last hayride will load at 9:15 p.m. “More than 250 people rode through on the trail last year,” said Rae Ann Fields, Chamber Director. The ride is $5 per person and is recommended for 12 years of age and older or children who ride with their parents. Sights include, swamp monsters, spiders, bats, vampires, cemeteries, witches and a few other “surprises” with live actors.

A Halloween costume contest will be held at 7 p.m. at the Mills Park stage. All ages (children) can compete. Prizes will be given for the best costumes. There will be divisions for different ages in the competition.

A bonfire, weather permitting and under the supervision of the Bryant Fire Department, will be burning between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.

“This year we have new props on the trail, thanks to Eagle Electric and the work working class at Bryant High School,” noted Riggin.

Businesses are invited to put on scenes on the trail. Those who sponsor scenes on the trail will be acknowledged with a four foot high sign in the shape of a tombstone on the trail announcing their sponsorship.
