Kids can enjoy a haunted forest and collect candy at a 'trunk or treat' event in Rome.

Papa Rick's Snack Shack is saying goodbye to summer and hello to Halloween with their second annual Haunted Forest. The event will take place on Saturday and Sunday, October 10th and 11th, from 7pm to 9pm.

Admission for the event is $3.

The haunted forest is a little bit scary, but all aged are welcome. Any child aged 12 or under who comes to the event in a costume will receive a free glow stick (while supplies last).

This year, the Snack Shack has added a Trunk or Treat event as well, so kids should bring a bag or bucket to collect candy in. Volunteers are still being sought to participate in the trunk or treat portion.
