      Annual Haunted Hayride ushers in Halloween spirit

      The fourth annual Haunted Hayride has turned the Marquette County Fairgrounds, into the Scaregrounds. Thursday night, the sponsors who help put on the hayride got a chance to take a test run.

      The 20-minute ride features actors and scenery all aimed at giving you a fright. After the ride, the scares don't stop; you then have to make your way through a haunted house. Organizers say all the money raised during the two-day event stays in the area.

      "It's a great local activity that we do here, great seasonal event that we do for our community. We keep everything right here; all the money then goes back to our local youth and non-profit groups right here in our community," said Andi Goriesky, coordinator for the Haunted Hayride. "We have the fairgrounds right here. It's a great way to support the fairgrounds and support everybody here."

      The Haunted Hayride runs Friday and Saturday night starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and will be sold up until 11 p.m. both nights.
