The first frightful night of fun at Wagner Farm Arboretum for the Halloween season has been washed away.
Brite Nites was to begin Friday at 7 p.m., with the event continuing on Saturday and Sunday, and then again next Friday, Saturday and Sunday. However, the hard rain that swept the area caused the cancellation of the first evening.
According to the website, there will be no refunds given, but those who have already purchased tickets can go at another time during the other nights of the event. However, the site recommends not coming for 7 p.m., due to a large amount of presales for that time slot. Each night has three time slots: 7, 7:30 and 8.
This year's Brite Nites will build on last year's vignettes to a suitably-scary ending.
And thanks to a crew of volunteers assembled by the event's head "ghoulmeister," Bill Ward, of Basking Ridge, visitors can check their fear levels in a tented area where eight different scenes are played out for the audience's enjoyment.
