Trick Or Treat

Officials in Archbold, Ridgeville, and Pettisville have set Trick-Or-Treat hours for Monday, Oct. 31.

Planning is underway for an Archbold Parks & Recreation Slightly Haunted Hayride.

Jim Wyse, Archbold mayor, established trick-ortreating in Archbold from 6 to 7:30 pm.

In Ridgeville Corners and Pettisvile, trick-or-treating is from 6:30 to 7:30 pm.


Jennifer Kidder, Archbold Parks & Recreation director, said the hayride will be held Sunday, Oct. 30, but she has not determined the time.

“It will be when it’s dark outside,” she said.

Farm tractors will tow wagons through Woodland Park woods past scary Halloween scenes.

“By waiting until after dark, hopefully it will be more scary. So much depends on the weather,” she said.

“We can’t get into the woods now to set things up. Hopefully, we’ll have some dry weeks.”

Over 400

Last year was the first year for the Slightly Haunted Hayride. Kidder estimated over 400 attended.
