There will also be a room for small children with coloring and face painting. The haunted house will begin tonight from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. and continue Friday and Saturday night. The cost of admission is $1 per person and all of the proceeds will benefit the Oxford Peace Officers Association.
If you don’t have enough Halloween fun this weekend, Oct. 29 and 30 the Oxford Park Commission will have their 26th Annual Haunted Forest at Avent Park. Complete with eight scary scenes designed by grad students of the University of Mississippi Park and Recreation Management Association, this Halloween attraction will scare your socks off.
It will open at 7 p.m. and continue until 10. Admission is $4 per person and adults must accompany children under 10.
If you are looking for something fun for the the little ones, Oxford Park Commission will also be hosting Goblin’s Egg Hunt on the Ball Field at Avent Park. Beginning at 6 p.m., kids ages four to eight can bring their baskets to hunt for eggs scattered about the field. Participating children must be in costume.
The School of Education will hold its fourth annual Halloween celebration in Guyton Hall Friday from 5- to 7 p.m. Admission is free, but any donations will go toward the decorations and other items used to create the event. Although anyone in the community is welcome to attend, the event is geared more toward children.
