Big Stone Gap – The Mountain Empire Community College campus will come alive with spirits, curses, and sacrifices this October as the college hosts the annual Haunted Forest every Friday and Saturday from 7 – 11 p.m., Oct. 6 – 27.
When the nights grow longer and the leaves start to change in the chill of autumn air, the woods take on a sinister tone. As the barrier between this world and the spirit world grows thinner, the true inhabitants of the forest come out until the whole campus is crawling alive … with the dead.
MECC’s Haunted Forest was recently voted one of Virginia’s top ten haunted attractions by The Scare Factor, available at www.thescarefactor.com.
Admission is $10 per victim. All proceeds will go to benefit scholarships for MECC students. This event is recommended for ages 10 and up. This is an outdoor event and guests are asked to wear appropriate shoes and clothing.
