This tractor-drawn hay wagon will crawl its way through an enchanted nightmare of ghosts, monsters, demons, twisted backwoods hillbillies, a friendly neighborhood ice cream ripper, a congregation of evil worship, and the nastiest clowns you’ve ever met (hopefully).

This is full on horror, with viscous demons and killers waiting around every corner and turn to ruin you.

Who doesn’t love Casper the friendly ghost?! Join a bunch of other friendly-ghost lovers in this free NYC Parks event. Watchers should get there a little before 6 to stake out a good watching spot, the event is BYOB (bring your own blankets) and food is allowed, but the event states that there’s no alcohol allowed. But hey, rules were made to be broken.
