Campgrounds Kick Off Annual Halloween Season
It's Halloween season again and campgrounds across the country are planning various events in conjunction with the season. Few do it quite as special as Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort in Santa Claus, Ind. The state's largest campground is hosting seven Halloween themed weekends every Friday and Saturday beginning today (Sept. 18) and ending on Oct. 31. The 9th Annual Lake Rudolph HalloWeekends will feature games for all ages including the Rudy's kid's carnival, Hadi Shrine Clowns, pumpkin decorating, Hallo-TEEN games, and Mummy's bingo party. Kids staying at the campground can trick or treat on Saturday evenings. Other features include a site decorating contest, Halloween dance, costume contest, frightful film classics and Rudy's haunted hayrides. The RiverTown Story Tellers will host Bonfire Ghost Stories each Friday evening. These events are for those staying at Lake Rudolph only. The campground each designs a special T-shirt, available at the campground store. This year's design (shown at left) features Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer as a ghost trick or treating with his ghost friends.
