Fright Master Nels and Fright Mistress Judy Warren are busy raising the evil spirits of Camp Evans. They are preparing a family friendly Halloween experience inside the haunted Marconi Hotel for kids and parents. If you dare to visit, the hotel will be open 6 to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 20, 21, 27 and 28. The $5 donation will be used to help InfoAge continue preserving historic CampEvans.
Are the Indian spirits still angry over losing their land? In the1880s, Asbury Park Press publisher Hugh Kinmouth died along the stream and walks the property looking for stories late at night. During World War II Col. Paul Watson died in the Marconi Hotel. Has his ghost left the hotel? Does he know his radar helped win that war? During World War I and World War II secret inventions developed at Camp Evansenabled the Allied Armed Forces to kill millions of enemy airmen, sailors and soldiers. Will they visit on Halloween seeking revenge? Is the ghost of the Nazi spy captured in Camp Evans and later shot still waiting to be picked by a U boat?
Dressed in Halloween costumes to help your fright experience are members of the Shore Regional High School Shore Players, members ot the National Thespian Honor Society, Wall High School Chapter and members of the Wall Township Boy Scouts. The proceeds from the event will help InfoAge, help support this years plays by the Shore Players and the Wall Thespian Society and help with Boy Scout activities.
