Tis The Season To Be Spooky


Sophie Lowry

With the start of October, and the weather cooling down, it’s starting to feel like spooky season. There’s a lot of ways to celebrate spooky season here around Garden City. One event is even happening on campus! The residential life assistants are hosting a haunted house in the Beth Tedrow Student Center on Oct. 29. This is a great opportunity to come out and support Garden City Community College and maybe even get in a good scare.

Besides the haunted house, there are several other activities in surrounding towns to get you in the spooky mood. There are pumpkin patches in Scott City, Sublette, and Dodge city which are under an hour away. This is a less scary choice in case haunted houses are not your thing. You and your friends can go pick pumpkins and participate in all of the other fun activities while you’re. At Horsetheif Reservoir, in Jetmore Kansas, they have something called zombie paintball. For $15 you can ride on a trailer through a cornfield and shoot zombies with paintballs. If you’re looking for a haunted house there are a couple of choices, but you have to drive a good distance to get to them. Field of Screams in Wichita Kansas is a scary haunted house and costs $20 per ticket. Another haunted house, called Nightmare, is located in the Country in Woodward, Oklahoma. We are really lucky out here in Garden City to have so many activities to get us in the fall spirit and ready for Halloween.
