Scaremare, sponsored by the Center for Youth Ministries at Liberty University, has been a favorite Halloween stop for families for more than 40 years.
The haunted house will be open this year on Thursday through Saturday nights from Oct. 10 until Halloween. Teens are willing to stand in line for hours to go through the scary scenes at Scaremare.
Many families decorate their yards each year for Halloween. Some families use spooky props while others prefer fun Halloween decor.
Whether you're the parent of toddlers who will be going trick-or-treating or teens who will attend Scaremare, you may also plan to participate in the Lynchburg Zombie Walk or the Run For Your Life Zombie Run this year.
Lynchburg Zombie Walk will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 26 at Lynchburg Community Market. Dress in your best zombie attire for a chance to win prizes.
Zombies of every age will parade through downtown Lynchburg. Your admission fee is canned food for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank or a cash donation to the Lynchburg Dog Park.
The Run For Your Life Zombie Run will be held on the campus of Presbyterian Homes & Family Services at 150 Linden Avenue on Oct. 27.
You can register in advance at the link above to be a zombie or a victim. You can also register on the day of Run For Your Life. Zombies need to arrive at 3 p.m. Victims need to arrive at 4 p.m. and the run begins at 5 p.m.
You'll find all of your Halloween needs at Lynchburg's two seasonal Halloween stores. Whether you're planning to dress as a zombie family or a family of superheroes, you'll find costumes and accessories.
Kids love visiting the Halloween stores. Some kids like spooky things and others enjoy seeing all of the costumes and displays. It's free to look so plan a trip with your kids soon.
