Washington County. If you’re up for a seriously spooky time, be sure to check out some of these frightfully fun hauntings. In Salem the historic Salem Courthouse has been completely transformed into a haunted building. The show started on Friday, Oct. 12, and runs for the next three weekends, culminating the weekend before Halloween. Organizer Rik Sassa said his company Fear This tries to pro-

vide something for all ages, with both scary and funny versions of the tour available, and they use the whole building and more, with all three floors in use — including the 1906 jail cells — as well as an outdoor maze. There’s also a kids’ coloring area outside of the haunted house, so very little people can stay occupied while older siblings treat themselves to a fright. Sassa also said there are a number of bail-outs along the route, in case it gets too intense for visitors. While Sassa and Glenn Cruze do a lot of the setup, it takes a troupe of between 15 and 25 costumed characters to populate the courthouse of horrors. Expect to spend between 20 and 30 heart-pounding, palm-sweating minutes going through the tour. The event is a nonprofit venture, with proceeds going to the courthouse itself. Shows are Friday and Saturday evenings, Oct. 19, 20, 26 and 27 and the finale on Sunday, Oct. 28; 6 to 9:30 p.m. nightly. Cost is $10 for adults, $5 for children 13 and under, $5 for volunteer fire or rescue personnel with identification and $25 for families. The show is handicap accessible and refreshments will be served. For more information, visit www.fearthis.org There’s scary fun to be had in the village of Argyle, where the R. Stiles Haunted House has been frightening people for the past 11 years. Described as the area’s “most entertaining” haunted house, the R. Stiles House’s ghouls, ghosts and goblins will rise from their “final” resting places

on Friday, Oct. 26 from 7 to 9 p.m., on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. and on Sunday, Oct. 28 from 6 to 8 p.m. Every year the Haunted House is new and different, with unexpected chills and scares. This unique community event includes participation from the Argyle Science Honor Society and many other volunteers from all walks of life. All ages are welcome, but parents should determine what is appropriate for their children. Admission to the R. Stiles Haunted House is $10 for adults and $5 for children. All proceeds will benefit the future Argyle Community Center. For more information, call Cathi Radner at 638-8803 or email cathi@castrio.com. Spooks and screams will abound this month at the firehouse in Middle Granville, where Nick Crouch has once again set up a haunted house. On eight nights through the month of October, Crouch, with the assistance of some of his friends and several firemen will arrange and open the haunted house. This year, Crouch has added a hayride behind the firehouse. Money raised from attendance will go to the Middle Granville Fire Department. There is a $4 admission fee. Children six and under get in for free. The attraction opened Oct. 5 and will be open weekend nights Oct. 19, 20, 26 and 27, and

will start at 7 p.m. each night and continue until people stop showing up. In Fort Edward, the Little Theater on the Farm has been transformed for the Eighth Annual Haunted Barn. This year’s theme is “Haunted Theater.” Along with dozens of volunteers, producers Jeremy Hammond and Sarabeth Oddy have created what is described as the “largest and best haunting in the area.” They warn those who dare to enter the barn to “watch out for Macbeth.” Admission to the Haunted Barn is $7 for adults and $5 for children. The Little Theater on the Farm is located at 27 Plum Road in Fort Edward. For more information, call 518-747-3421 or visit www.littletheater27.org.

Lake Jump LAKE LAUDERDALE It’s time to get your team ready for the Third Annual Jump in the Lake event, to be held Sunday, Oct. 21 at 1 p.m. at the Washington County Park at L a k e Lauderdale in Cambridge. The fundraising event is sponsored by the group Hugs for Heroes as a way to thank our troops, veterans, police, firefighters and EMTs for their service. Proceeds from the event will be used to benefit financially in-need military families and local responders such as police or firefighters who may need financial assistance. Last year’s Jump in the Lake raised $10,000, said organizer Clara Hunt. Teams frequently dress up in themed costumes, Hunt noted. Participants can jump in the lake or just put a toe in the water. Either way, you are “jumping” for a good cause. Spectators are welcome to come and watch the fun. Also attending the event again this year is the Patriot Guard of New York, a team of motorcyclists who stand guard at military funerals. Following the group lake plunge, food, beverages and fun will follow at the American Legion in Cambridge. Sponsor sheets are available at area merchants in Cambridge, Salem, and Greenwich. There is still time to get a team together, or just take the plunge as a oneperson team to honor our heroes. For more information, call

Donna Alexander at 518-8543517 or Clara Hunt at 518-6775098.
