Muncy LocalsOct. 16, 2019
People, for some reason, enjoy being scared. Books, movies, television shows, and other media sources use the macabre` to turn a profit. Locally, media night was held last week at the Pennsdale Haunted Barn and a number of outlets attended, including our “big sister” publication, the Williamsport Sun-Gazette, and representatives from radion station WZXR. It was a frighteningly enjoyable experience navigating through the barn, encountering creepy scenarios that made us gasp, jump-scare and shriek. Kudos to the nearly 30 volunteers who make this available and have put a tremendous amount of effort towards creating a temporarily terrifying experience.
