Celebrate Halloween early this year with a day of spooky fun for the entire family at Hard Labor Creek State Park in Rutledge. Hard Labor Creek is hosting its annual Haunted House and Spooky Trail by the Lake, this Saturday, Oct. 23.

“Come visit Hard Labor Creek's Haunted House by Lake Rutledge for a family-friendly, slight-fright event,” said a press release from Hard Labor Creek. “Walk through the haunted trail filled with scenes of your Halloween scary favorites, including an appearance by that hockey mask wearing man from the movies.”
