Nothing To Do This Weekend? Check Out These Fun Local Activities

October 28, 2011 by John Rook

All right, so the weather isn't suppose to be good for the coming weekend. In fact, as of Friday morning, the forecast was for snow....significant snow. But, as we all know, weathermen have a nasty habit of being wrong. The storm might blow out to sea, or just clip Connecticut, leaving just enough good weather for you to enjoy a day (or night) out. If you're still trying to decide on what to do, you might want to consider these events:

*Friday, Oct. 28
Haunted Hayride
Bishop Farm
500 South Meriden Road
7 to 10 p.m.

If you haven't already gotten down to Bishop Farm for the Haunted Hayride, time is running out. Tonight is the last night to enjoy local goblins from the CHS Class of 2012, as they offer up scares. Tickets are $5 per person.

*Friday, Oct. 28, Saturday, Oct. 29, Sunday, Oct. 30
Masons Haunted House
9 Country Club Road
6:30 p.m. to 12 a.m.

This weekend, the Masonic Temple Lodge #16 will be transformed into a frightening haunted hospital, where the only patients left have long since passed on. This scary good time is not for the faint of heart, and parents of children 13 and younger are warned that the material might be a little too ghoulish to handle. Tickets are $8 and refreshments will be served.

*Saturday, Oct. 29
Chilly Dog Walk
Cheshire Park
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

If you're looking for a fun time for the entire family, and that includes your furry friends, come out for the Chilly Dog Walk, sponsored by Soul Friends and Cheshire Dog Park. The walk/run will feature a costume contest for children and canines, agility and search and rescue demos, State Police K-9 unit demonstrations, arts and crafts for kids, and free chili dogs for everyone.

*Saturday, Oct. 29
Basketball Without Boundaries Tournament
Cheshire High School
525 South Main Street
9 a.m.

The NBA might be in a lockout, but basketball will be alive and well at CHS this weekend as the First Annual Basketball Without Boundaries Tournament is held. Tickets are $3.
