Haunted Farm Tour
Donaldson-Bannister Farm (corner of Chamblee-Dunwoody and Vermack Roads)
3:00pm to 9:00pm on Saturday, October 22
Find giggles and surprises around every corner as Boy Scout Troop 477 takes you on a guided tour back in time, bringing the history of Dunwoody to life through guided time travel at the Haunted Farm Tour, Saturday, October 22 from 3:00pm to 9:00pm at the Donaldson-Bannister Farm (corner of Chamblee-Dunwoody and Vermack Roads).
You’ll meet Native Americans, Civil War soldiers, settlers and some of Dunwoody's original residents. You can also play games, make crafts and s'mores, hear live music, eat yummy snacks and dinner all afternoon and evening. Don't miss Dunwoody's favorite Halloween tradition.
Hosted by Boy Scout Troop 477, this fun annual event is a fundraiser to help send boys to summer camp, and provide scholarships for boys that can’t afford to participate in scouting.
“Last year we had more than 1,600 people come and enjoy the festivities,” said Barry Deutsch, assistant scoutmaster for Troop 477. “And this year, we are expecting another big crowd, so will have even more food, more games and more fun.”
If a walk back in time isn’t enough, a large field will feature more than 20 games and crafts, along with face painting, pumpkin decorating and “make your own” air rockets. There will also be a campfire for roasting the perfect s’more on a chilly October evening.
An expanded food court, part of the farm’s recent renovation, will feature everything needed to feed hungry ghouls, including burgers, turkey legs, chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, and fresh baked cookies.
Plenty of free parking is available at Independence Square (corner of Chamblee Dunwoody at Peeler) with regular shuttle bus service. Additional parking will be available just down the street at the Vermack Swim Tennis center.
Boy Scout Troop 477 thanks its sponsors, including Smurti Corp. for supplying the food court.
Volunteers are needed! Middle and High School students are needed to help with games, tours, crafts. Service hours will be awarded. Contact HauntedTour@Troop477.com
