'Fright Night' set at Billie Creek Village

Monday, October 20, 2008

ROCKVILLE -- Billie Creek Village, along with Rockville Rotary, are teaming together to bring area residents two nights of Halloween "fright."

The annual event will take place Saturday and Sunday at Billie Creek Village.

With planning by the Rockville Rotary Club, Billie Creek Village Farmstead, Leatherwood Station Covered Bridge, Nature Preserve and Billie Creek ford will turn into a "dark and frightful journey."

This year's event will offer a number of "scary stops" at a haunted covered bridge, cemetery, along with possible visits from a gorilla, swamp monster, witches and other movie-theme type characters.

As the tractor-pulled wagon departs from the schoolhouse yard, those attending will want to hold on tight, as ghosts and goblins line the route.

The Rockville High School Interact Club, which is sponsored by Rockville Rotary, will perform face painting for children while they wait for the next shuttle wagon to continue the journey.

A refreshment stand at the village will also be open throughout the weekend.

Ticket sales for the event begin at 5:30 p.m. each evening at Billie Creek Village's admission building.

The rides will run continuously from 7-9 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.

Admission to the village is free.

Fright Night rides are $5 each for anyone over 3. Discount coupons are available from Rockville Rotarians and at area businesses and many elementary schools. Profits from the event will be distributed to several not-for-profit organizations that assist Rotary in conducting the event.

Fore more information, call Rotary Fright Night chairman Shelly Reed at 765-592-4574 or the Billie Creek Inn office at 765-569-3430.

Billie Creek Village and Inn is located one mile east of Rockville on State Road 36.
