This is week two of the 13th annual “Boo Fest” at Diamond Lake Resort. The family-friendly event is open to the entire community, as well as to campers.

The weekend starts on Saturday at 11 a.m. with food, games, pony rides, and pumpkin painting. There will also be a non-scary, kid-friendly hayride during the day, as well as afternoon trick-or-treating at the campsites.

Diamond Lake co-owner Brian Smith said they have had added bounce houses as a new element this year, as well as meals served on a souvenir “flying disc.”

The cost for hamburgers is $4, hot dogs are $3, and both are served with chips and a drink on a frisbee.

The contests abound with costume contests, golf cart decorating contests, and campsite decorating contests each weekend.

For those looking for a little more thrill, Diamond Lake also offers Fright Night, it’s one-of-a-kind haunted house, “Voted one of the scariest haunted houses in the Tri-state area.”

Smith says this year “it’s bigger and better than ever.”

Family-friendly Boo Fest activities are held on Saturdays while Fright Night will continue to be offered every Friday and Saturday in October. Oct. 12 – 13, Oct. 19 – 20 and Oct. 26 – 27, with Fright Night running from 7 – 10 p.m. Admission to Fright Night is $10.

There are various activities offered throughout the day at a minimal cost. Click here for a complete list of activities and costs.
