Things are about to get spooky in Cadott forest
By Ginna Young
’Tis the season to be spooky and it can’t get much spookier at Cadott, than the Haunted School Trail. Taking place at the school forest on 21998-21000 80th Avenue, the event will be held Saturday, Oct. 26, from 7-10 p.m.
Sponsored by the 2020 Senior Class Lock-in, the half mile trail takes attendees to a place filled with Halloween spirit. In the past, Alan Sonnentag has hosted two trails at his house, but this year, with his daughter, Jennifer, as part of the 2020 senior class, Sonnentag decided to make the trail a bigger affair.
“They were looking for different sorts of ideas to raise money for the senior class lock-in and so we came up with this,” said Sonnentag. “We thought it would be a good one, something different, I guess.”
Groups will be limited to no more than six on the selfguided trail, with a discount for families. Advance tickets are not needed and can be purchased at the trail.
“We don’t want to price it so people look at it and go, oh, we really can’t afford to go,” said Sonnentag.
Included in the frightening cast of characters, are zombies, werewolves, witches, clowns and maybe even a chain sawwielding maniac.
“I’m trying to get as many seniors as we can to help out,” said Sonnentag.
Once the individuals or groups are done with their scary experience on the trail, hot chocolate, apple cider and baked goods will be available for purchase at the concessions stand.
Sonnentag invites any and all to come to the one-night trail.
“The goal is to just raise money for the senior lock-in,” he said.
