Hurricane Sandy Couldn't Scare Off Ghouls in Haddonfield and Haddon Twp.

Zombies, ghouls, witches and the ghost of Elizabeth Haddon haunted the Haddons Saturday night. But it was all for a good cause.

Haddon Township student council officers decided to bring back the the annual haunted school house for the 2012 Halloween season to entertain the local community.

Logan Peterson, a junior at Haddon Township High School and a student council officer, said "the school took a three-year break from the annual event and the officers decided it was time to bring back one of the favorite traditions for the town."

This year, students from freshmen to seniors created a haunted hospital with a chemistry lab gone haywire, an blood stained operating room, a zombie filled psychiatric unit, a disturbing and demented daycare and of course, no hospital is complete without a morgue. Guests who made it the entire way through the haunted hospital were greeted by pleasant spirits who provided refreshments and treats in the school cafeteria.

The Historical Society of Haddonfield decided to haunt Greenfield Hall for two nights this year by adding a Saturday night showing to their annual Halloween event. The usual spooks were on hand, as well as ghouls, witches, a dead prom queen, a dead bride and the main attraction, the ghost of Elizabeth Haddon.

For some, the Saturday haunted houses were a perfect addition this year as many are expecting Frankenstorm to cause many towns to cancel Halloween events scheduled for Tuesday night. For breaking news about Hurricane Sandy, check in with Haddon Patch often.
