It’s creepy and it’s kooky…mysterious and spooky…it’s Halloween in the New Jersey Skylands. Yes, it’s hard to believe the season of ghosts and goblins is upon us. The air up here in Sussex County has turned crisp, the leaves need almost daily blowing and I’ve bought my candy for the trick or treaters that are sure to descend. The Inn is all decked out for the holiday, and my sassy little witch friends are perched on the mantels.
In between decorating, baking pumpkin bread and trying to exercise some self-control with so much candy around, I’ve been checking out some of the activities in and around the Whistling Swan Inn. Once again, Corrado’s Farm in Hackettstown will have their “Hayride of Horrors”. While I haven’t participated in this, I have it on good authority that the people who work on the hayride are experts at scaring the bejesus out of you.
