Local News

SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Sullivan County FFA Chapter is hosting a Fright Night event from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Oct. 23 at the Sullivan High School Agriculture Barn complete with many spooky activities for all ages.

Parking for the event will be at the Sullivan Middle School. The event will include activities such as pumpkin decorating, a petting zoo and trunk or treat.

Additionally, older attendees will be able to partake in a haunted trail later on in the night. The event had to be scaled back significantly last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but FFA Advisor Kevin Cross said the group is expecting a large turnout this year.

“You know, we’re a year and a half into the pandemic and I think that people are definitely looking forward to getting back to the fun things we used to be able to do,” Cross said. “We had around 900 people in attendance in 2019 and we’re hoping to have that many if not more this year and we’re going to be ready for a big crowd.”

The FFA Fright Night event is free and open to the public. The chapter will also be collecting canned goods with the hopes of filling a truck bed with donations that will go to a local food pantry, Cross said.
