Pettibone gets ready for “Haunted Mile”



‘Haunted houses’ as entertainment for Halloween have been scared out of existence in many places this year, because of the real-life fear of COVID-19. 

For example, the Onalaska Jaycees Haunted House is off for this fall, but the Jaycees have teamed up with the La Crosse park department to provide some scares this weekend, at the Pettibone Haunted Mile. 

Park department organizer Mckenzie Wilson says there will be two levels of haunting during the one-night-only event, this Saturday the 24th–a not-so-scary “mile” from 5 to 7 p.m., followed by more scary from 7 to 9.    

Wilson says people driving through Pettibone Park will make several stops in the park to watch scary scenes. 

They’re asked to bring a food donation, and all the cars will get bags of candy at the end.      

Wilson says more than 5000 visitors have said on line that they hope to attend.
