Volunteers, vendors sought for Haunt for Hunger event

BLACKSTONE - The 5th annual Haunt for Hunger will be held Saturday, Oct. 26, at 181 Elm St.

Craft vendor space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost is $25 per table. There is also a need for volunteers to act, run games, assist with the bake sale, or help sort canned goods. Donations of candy are also welcome for the Trick or Treat Trail, as well as prizes for the games, baked goods, or raffle items.

The Haunt's newest feature, the Trick or Treat Trail, is geared to children up to age 10. Children are encouraged to come in costume, walk the trail, and receive candy from kid-friendly actors.

Upon admission, each child will receive 10 tickets to play the various games. The trail, craft fair, bake sale, and raffle will be open from noon to 6 p.m.

Opportunities will be provided for community members to share their talents during the Haunt. There is limited space for acts to participate between 12:30 and 5:30 p.m. Each act must be kid-friendly.

The Haunting at Stone Hill Farm, the haunted trail portion of the Haunt for Hunger, will be open to the general public at 7 p.m. The trail is geared toward patrons 13 and up, and takes guests down a dimly lit wooded trail filled with actors and frightening scenes. The trail will close at 11 p.m.

Admission is two canned goods per person for the Blackstone-Millville Food Pantry or a $2 per person donation to The Milk Fund.

All proceeds from the bake sale and raffle will benefit the No Kid Hungry campaign.
