Fright Nights from Rotary

Wednesday, October 22, 2003

Once again, Billie Creek village and Rockville Rotary will team up to bring area residents two nights of Halloween fright. The annual event will be Oct. 25-26 at Billie Creek village.

With the help of the Rockville Rotary club, a trip through the usually peaceful Billie Creek Village Farmstead, Leatherwood Station Covered Bridge, Nature Preserve and Billie Creek Ford will become a dark and frightful journey.

This year's event will offer a number of scary stops. As the tractor-pulled wagon departs from the schoolhouse yard, hold on tight -- ghosts and goblins line the route and one never knows who or what will be around the next turn.

During Fright Nights, Billie Creek Village and Inn will offer something for everyone. The village will be open, free of charge, so visitors may tour the historic buildings and shop at the General Store.

Each evening, enjoy storytelling by Diana VanMiddlesworth around a campfire. The village refreshment stand will be open each evening, serving its full menu and featuring Hobo Stew. Other food offerings include the Knapke Family Nut Shack featuring freshly roasted nuts and Humphries Apple Cider featuring fresh apple cider and popcorn balls. Ticket sales will begin at 5:30 p.m. each evening at the village's front admissions building. Rides will run continuously 6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday nights.

New this year will be the People's Choice Award.

After the ride, vote for your favorite scary stop by dropping your ticket stub in the appropriate box inside the General Store.

Admission to the village is free. Fright Night rides are $5 each for anyone over the age of 3. Discount coupons may be found at the Rockville Burger King. Group rates are also available.

For more information, call (765)569-3430. Billie Creek Village & Inn is one mile east of Rockville on U.S. 36.
