Although it isn’t quite Halloween, there are a number of spooky events to check out this weekend in Gettysburg. Plus, the leaves are at their peak and the area looks absolutely beautiful. This weekend also marks Gettysburg College Homecoming and Family Weekend! Click here for a guide of what’s going on around campus. There are a number of downtown Gettysburg businesses that offer a 10% discount to college students and parents with a college or parent ID. Here is the full list of participating businesses to visit.
- Visit the Historic Round Barn for Pandemonium’s Round Barn of Terror:
The Historic Round Barn may be a cute and innocent farm market by day, but once the sun begins to set, all bets are off. At 6:30pm every Friday and Saturday in October the second floor of the Historic Round Barn & Farm Market will transform into Pandemoniums Round Barn of Terror.
- Admission into the Round Barn of Terror is $10 and the last ticket will be sold at 10:30pm each night. Admission includes the HAUNT, BONFIRE WITH REFRESHMENTS AND SCARY MOVIES (bonfire and movies are weather permitting). Also, HAUNTED SHOPPING in the farm market during “TERROR” hours!Each weekend a different non-profit organization will volunteer their haunting skills. Each organization will then receive a portion of the sales for the nights that they volunteer. So after you are scared out of your mind, you can feel good about it, because you are helping a good cause. Read more on their website and Facebook page.
