LUMBERTON — Halloween is right around the corner, and scaring up some fun in Robeson County should be no problem.
The haunted house and hayrides continue tonight and Monday beginning at dark at Southern Farms, located at 1489 Saddletree Road in Lumberton.
“We think part of the fun of Halloween is being a little scared, being on edge a little bit,” said Paula Lowry, who owns the farm with her husband Terry.
Paula said the haunted house, which features a different scene in each room, is go-at-your-own risk.
“We’ve seen where they just kick the walls,” Paula said. “They run out, they say it’s real scary, it’s real good. … Some hallways are total darkness.”
