Get ready to get scared, Richmond.
Lots of pumpkin patches and theme parks are bringing out the boogie-man, scary clowns and guys with chainsaws for haunted Halloween fun, all month long.
Terror Scream Park at Chesterfield Berry Farm has been updated this year with a new haunted corn maze. They also have a Total Terror haunted trail, zombie paintball and two other haunted attractions.
There is no haunted hayride at Creepy Hollow this year. Instead, they've expanded Scream Forest for a scary walk in the woods with "50 live actors monsters, incredible animatronics, amazing illusions and acres of screams."
