>October is here and Halloween festivities are just around the corner, I spotted the following press release on the Atlantic Highlands Herald website. It sounds like a lot of fun and something a little different then your standard run of the mill hayride or haunted house, I think that I will take the kids and check it out.
Sandy Hook, NJ – The New Jersey Marine Sciences Consortium/New Jersey Sea Grant Program (NJMSC/NJSG) will wrap up its 2008 fall F.I.S.H. (Families Investigate Science Hands-On) season with the frighteningly popular HALLOW-MARINE on October 25th with 45 minute haunted marsh tours from 5 to 8 pm. HALLOW-MARINE offers families and youth groups a spine-chilling adventure filled with creepy sea creatures, pirates, and long lost ghosts of the coast.
Experience the eerie side of Sandy Hook during this ghoulishly-fun, guided tour featuring true facts, tall tales, myths, mystery and more. Explore the marsh at twilight where wet, wild and weird discoveries will be uncovered. The program geared for children aged 5 and up is ghoulishly fun for the whole family. All children must be accompanied by an adult. This special F.I.S.H. program is $13.00 per person. Due to tremendous popularity, HALLOW-MARINE, now in its seventh year, is always a sell-out and reservations are required.
