Halloween is right around the corner. As we approach mid-October, we remember why we love this time of year – we get to spotlight our spooky Milkshake Madness (this month’s shakes are Cereal Killers, and trust us when we say you’ll be DYING to get your hands on them before they’re gone!) and play games that really get us into the spirit like Betrayal at House on the Hill or Mysterium. We are lucky that we are located in the hub of downtown Hudson and close to all the seasonal fun in the surrounding areas. Check out the list of spooky activities below that are sure to make for a frightfully good time!
Hudson Haunted House (located in Oak Grove Park) this local non-profit haunted house is one of the best Haunted Houses in the area, and is a Hudson tradition, run by the Hudson Jaycees since 1972. The money they raise during the haunting season is for local and national charities! You can purchase tickets onsite with cash or credit card. They offer group pricing, have a food vendor onsite, and free parking.
