Frontier Town Gets Haunted
Frontier Town—the popular western themed park and rodeo operational in the summer months, is about to turn delightfully ghoulish! Beginning this weekend, the wooded area around the park is turning into a Haunted Halloween Trail known as “FrontFear Town.”
The haunted trail is open to the public for a small fee (less than $5 per person). Locals line up and see if you can make it the entire way through the trail. It begins at the entrance to the Wild West Show. Spooks and Spirits take place during the weekend of October 19th and October 26th.
Events planned include a 'guess the pumpkin weight' contest, a scary movie shown on a large projection screen, a campsight decorating contest, children's pumpkin painting, pony rides, kids and adult costume contests, pet costume parade, and a haunted trail through the woods of FrontFear Town.

Wooded areas at night are creepy to begin with. This particular area is very old, land grants were issued here in the 1600’s, with working plantations popping up in the 1700’s, and long before that, Indians walked the forests—and maybe they still do! There’s enough local folklore to up the ante in the scare factor--add in giant spider webs and some undead residents jumping out of the bushes, and it’s a recipe for a certain adrenaline rush!
For those camping at Frontier Town, the park offers pumpkin decorating contests, trick-or treating, adult dances and more. Only the Haunted Trail is open to the public.
Festivities begin this weekend, and run every Saturday through Halloween. The events are part of the campground’s annual Spooks and Spirits Weekend.
The Haunted Trail is from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Frontier Town is located on rt. 611, the road to Assateague Island.
