Halloween Haunted House to be held at the Orange Train Depot
Last updated 10/17/2023 at 12:59pm
Little ghosts and goblins are encouraged to don their Halloween costumes and experience the first annual Spooktacular @ the Depot, Monday, October 30, and Tuesday (Halloween), October 31, from 6-8PM at the Orange Train Depot Museum, 1210 Green Avenue.
Trains and mysterious happenings historically have occurred throughout the years and with ghosts of the past expected to make their presence known, what better place to be but in a century-old train station?
The Friends of the Orange Depot have combined forces with the West Orange Cove Consolidated ISD to provide some ghoulish good times in the Depot during Halloween. Students, teachers, and volunteers of the organization, vampires and ghosts will be floating around the depot as costumed kiddos come to experience Spooktacular @ the Depot.
After wandering through the maze of scary rooms, kids will be rewarded with candy, of course, plus popcorn, and hot dogs. To offset some expenses, there will be an entrance fee of $2.00.
Vice president of the FOOD Board, George Bohn, is spearheading the event, because of his experience holding a very successful haunted house in the historic ship, the USS Orleck, for a time docked in the Sabine River. His co-chair is the president, Alicia Booker, who promises a Depot decked with Halloween regalia. Drama teacher Mason Franco and his team of students have generously donated their time and talent to make sure all have a spooktacular time.
