A Haunting Halloween

Valdosta State sorority to host Haunted Maze; other activities also scheduled across area

VALDOSTA, Ga. — The women of the Rho Chapter of Sigma Alpha Omega Christian Sorority Inc. on the campus of Valdosta State University will help kick off the 2007 Halloween season from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday with a Haunted Maze.

The Rho Chapter of Sigma Alpha Omega Christian Sorority Inc.’s Haunted Maze will be located in the miscellaneous field area behind Centennial Hall on Sustella Avenue and open to both Valdosta State University students, as well as the general public. With all proceeds benefiting the sorority’s various charitable endeavors, tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for university students and $3 for children 12 and younger.

Individuals and families interested in a much less frightening maze — assuming a lack of familiarity with the Stephen King short story, Children of the Corn, or its film adaptations — will enjoy Hahira’s Corn-fusing Maze.

Featuring paths, dead-ends and turns cut into 10 acres of cornfield, the Corn-fusing Maze will open to the public from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Friday and from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Saturday through Nov. 10. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for ages 12 and younger. Groups of 15 or more will receive a $1 discount per person. Other activities include a hayride, a corn cannon with four shots for $1, a mini maze, a pumpkin patch, face painting and a “sand” box filled with corn.

For more information, please call (229) 794-2598 or (229) 300-0185.

• From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26, in the parking lot behind the Valdosta State University Student Recreation Center on Sustella Avenue, the Rho Chapter of Sigma Alpha Omega Christian Sorority Inc. will host Trunk or Treat.
