A hay ride and haunted house tour to benefit a local cancer fund is planned for Friday and Saturday, Oct. 25 and 26 and Friday and Saturday, Nov. 1 and 2.
"The Listening Hill Horror" tour is a "huge production with around 100 people volunteering their time and talents," said Laurie Chitwood, event organizer.
Chitwood's grandfather, Raymond David, lost his battle with stomach cancer in 1995.
With the help of family and dozens of volunteers, Chitwood has been hosting the hay ride and haunted house event for at least nine years.
The festivities will take place at 1800 Listening Hill Road in Penhook.
"We usually have over 1,500 people in attendance each year," said Chitwood.
Visitors will ride a hay wagon to the nearby haunted house.
The Raymond David Memorial Cancer Fund is a non-profit charity that helps local families with the medical bills associated with cancer.
"We have helped so many people over the years," said Chitwood. "The more people who come out, the more families we can help."
The event begins at 7 p.m. each night. Cost of admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under.
Concessions will also be available for sale.
Directions: Take Route 40 East to Union Hall, right on Novelty Road, right on Listening Hill Road. Follow the signs.
