Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park and the Friends of Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park are seeking area businesses and organizations to participate in their annual Haunted Tram Rides community event scheduled for Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26, 2013. The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. each evening, and run until 11:00 p.m. Pepper Creek Trail will be transformed during these evenings into a trail of haunting scenarios that will delight families. Participating businesses and organizations will be given a location on Pepper Creek Trail to decorate with their own spooky set-up. Guidelines and applications are available at the Park office. There will be no charge to sponsor a location and all locations will be judged for cash awards for first ($500), second ($300) and third place ($100).

 

This will be the ninth year the Friends of Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park will be holding the Haunted Tram Rides event which has attracted thousands of visitors each night. In addition to the Haunted Tram Rides, the event includes family fun such as clowns, face painting, a Halloween costume contest, refreshments and trinkets for the children. The suggested donation for the tram ride is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children up to age 12. A special Haunted House for children will be set up in the Florida Room. The donation for admission to the Haunted House is $2.00 per child.

If your business, club, group or family is interested in participating, please call Tricia Fowler at (352) 628-5445, ext. 1006 or Susan Strawbridge at (352) 628-5445, ext. 1002.
