- Haunted House – Monday, October 31st witness the spook-tacular Halloween event at Burton Chace Parks. This second annual haunted house features a cryptic tour of a haunted house set up in the community center in addition to a costume contest. The ghoulish games are from 7pm -9pm. Admittance is free.
