MEBANE — For 45 years, The Hawfields Civitan Club’s Haunted Forest has provided the community with a “screaming good time.”
Gracie Lobaugh, of Mebane, makes an effort to be at the Haunted Forest every year with her friends and family.
“My favorite part of the forest is going through all of the different parts of it and getting scared. The thrill of making it through all of the different parts is what drives me to go back every year,” she said.
The forest started out as a small trail and grew into the haunted forest everyone knows today.
Katie Doss is one of the chairwomen on the board of directors for the event.
“I believe the haunted forest has always been a success because we are consistent. We have members that put in so much time and effort to make the forest the best it can be. We really strive to make the experience fun and enjoyable for the whole family,” she said.
