Spooktacular Mini Golf

Looking for some family time in October?

Think about tee time at SPOOKTACULAR MINI GOLF formerly known as Ghoul’s Ghostly Golf and Crafton Putt Putt.
We have 18 Fang-tastic holes that you won’t want to miss (Spider’s Web, Googly Eyes and Handsome Devil to name a few).

October 12 – 13 and 19 – 20 from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
Admission is $4 for 18 holes with children under three who can prowl for free.

The course is located at Steuben (Route 60) & Linden Streets across from Crafton Park, where parking is available.
We hope that you will come out and join us for some fun as St. Philip School hosts their brand-new event.

A small treat will find you as you at your final tee.
Eyes will SEE YOU SOON

Parents please remind your little ghouls and goblins of some Halloween safety tips (stay in groups, check your candy, wear reflective clothing or carry a flashlight, stay on the sidewalk, trick or treat with an adult or older sibling, etc.)

With the diminishing amount of daylight that we are seeing it is also a good idea to carry a flash light or wear some reflective clothing while you are outside for a walk, bike ride, run or playing with the children. Remember to leave lights on when you are not home and to lock everything up, even during the day.

Please report anything suspicious to the police department immediately by calling 911.
