The Anderson University Falls School of Business presents Killbuck Trails: Fall Fest and Haunted Woods. The Fall Fest will take place during the hours of 1 - 7 p.m. on October 9, 15, 16, 23 and 30. Tickets will be $7 for adults, $5 for children 12 and under. The Haunted Woods will take place after dusk until 2 a.m. on October 8, 21, 22, 28 and 29. Tickets will be $10 for general admission, $7 for students, military, and first responders. Tickets will be sold at the Killbuck Trails entrance.

fsbAll aspects of the month-long event will be managed by Anderson University Falls School of Business students. For some, this is their first time planning and executing their own venture in the business realm. “Killbuck Trails” opens to the public in its first annual family fun festival and haunted trail combination after several years.

With plans for activities including a one-mile-long hayride, a pumpkin patch, a mini maze, launching, pumpkin decorating, speed pitching, and pumpkin destruction, the daytime Fall Fest is bound to be a family favorite for both adults and children. For those looking for a thrill after dark, the Haunted Woods offer more than just ghost and ghouls.

The response to the Family Fun Fest can be summed up by Natalie Nagengast, a senior entrepreneurship student. “This is a great event for Anderson. We have received so much support from the town and are excited to see everyone come out and enjoy.”
