Rockville 'Fright Night' scheduled

Thursday, October 14, 2010

ROCKVILLE -- The Billie Creek Village and Rockville Rotary Club are teaming together to bring area residents two nights of Halloween "fright."

The annual event will take place Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 23-24, at Billie Creek Village.

The usual peaceful 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, monsters, witches and other movie theme type characters.

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

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

Rotarians and Interact members, along with both the Parke County 4-H Junior Leaders and the 4-H Rabbit Club, will work as Halloween characters at the stations along the route.

Pumpkin art carvings by students from the Rockville High School art department will also be part of the decorations.

The concession stand and the General Store in the Village will be open both evenings.

Ticket sales for the Fright Night rides begin at 5:30 p.m., each evening, at Billie Creek Village's front admission building.

The rides will run continuously from 7-8:45 p.m., both evenings.

Admission to the Village is free although there will be a charge for anyone 3-older. Discount coupons are available from Rockville Rotarians and at area businesses.
