This year we are hosting a drive through event at McGimsey Scout Park for our annual Spook O Ree!
To keep the spirit of Halloween alive and remain safe during COVID, we are offering a contact-free event. You purchase your tickets ahead of time, and then come out to McGimsey on November 7th, 2020, between the hours of 6:00 pm and 10:00 pm. You will enter by the ranger’s house on Wedgewood and exit through the NW Military gate after driving the campsite loop and viewing our spooky scenes and creations.
Each scene will be adjustable based on age of your scouts, so if your scouts want something less spooky, just turn on your flashers and we will adjust to you. If you are ready to see all the fun and creativity of Halloween, leave your flashers off and BEWARE!
In order to create a really exciting event we have asked units to volunteer to design and present specific themed scenes. Some of these themes are: Creepy Crawly Dinner Party, Hocus Pocus, Sleepy Hollow, Nightmare Before Christmas. Areas will be a mixture of live action and stationary displays. The drive through speed is 5 mph, so you will get to see it all! At the end of the trip there is a dance troop you will see as you collect a goody bag for your kids before exiting out onto Military Highway.
Purchase your ticket here for THE HAUNTED FOREST OF MCGIMSEY SCOUT PARK!
