Witch’s Haunted Barn - Saturdays in October

Hillsborough, NC | More Info

Just to the north of Chapel Hill, Hillsborough is the place to go for The Witch’s Haunted Barn. Held at Firefly Farm in Hillsborough, the event is low on the “scare level”, so it’s perfect for those with younger kids. Because it’s a barn, you’ll also probably see some chickens, donkeys, and horses during your visit. Be sure to wear your costume. You can purchase tickets ahead of time online.
