The Douglas Manor Environmental Association is getting into the spooky spirit of the season this weekend at Udalls Cove’s Osprey Landing.
The event will run from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Oct. 27 at Memorial Field in Douglas Manor.
“We’re going to have a haunted forest with smoke machines,” said Jamie Sutherland, secretary for the Douglas Manor Association. “There will be a fortune teller, scary goblins, a bake sale, apple cider and hot chocolate, pumpkin painting and some games for the kids. It’s an event for the whole family.”
The event will also include a contest for the best Halloween costume, sword fights with a pirate and apple bobbing.
There is a $5 suggested donation per child.
It will act as a fundraiser for Osprey Landing, a two-acre parcel of land that was upgraded from a low-lying marsh to a neighborhood spot for bird watching. The landing, which opened in March, was created through the efforts of the Udalls Cove Preservation Committee and the Douglas Manor Association.
