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.
