Tuckerton — The dead just won’t stay dead in Tuckerton. “Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse” is the theme of the Haunted Seaport’s four “frightastic” nights: Thursday through Sunday, Oct. 17 to 20, from 6 to 9 p.m. Pirates and sea captains long lost at sea will materialize on the boardwalk to join you in a night of screams. Beware the graveyard, where souls are not at rest. Climb aboard a hayride for a howling good time through the Forest of Fear, and always be on the lookout for the Jersey Devil.

For the little ones, there is a non-scary pumpkin patch area with crafts, stories, games and not-so-scary fall activities provided by Jersey Family Fun. Make your own trick-or-treat bag, catch a magic show from Joe Holiday or jump on the Ferris wheel bounce and slide. Make pumpkin slime and join in the Halloween dance party.

The free Joe Holiday Magic Show is on Thursday and Friday at 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday at 4:30, 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 p.m.

“We try to have a good mix of scary and non-scary events for everyone,” said Seaport Director Brooke Salvanto.

Admission is $10. Anyone younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Forest of Fear hayrides are an additional $5.

The Haunted Seaport is fun for all ages, and food will be available. Last admission will be at 8 p.m. or earlier depending on capacity.

You just might want to bring an extra pair of socks as this could knock them off you.

The Haunted Seaport is located at 220 Main St. in historic Tuckerton. Call 609-296-8868 for more information. —P.J.
