Put your carving skills to work and make a pumpkin for this year's Haunted Car Crawl! We need lots of jack o’ lanterns to fill the pumpkin patch and create a spooky atmosphere to kick off the crawl!. 



Take the entrance to Freeman Kennedy near the Grange and leave your pumpkin in the field across from the back of the school.  Pumpkins can be brought to Freeman after 9am on Saturday, October 28th, the day of the event. Put your name on it so you can easily find it if you want it back! 



Please pick up your pumpkin by 12:00pm on Sunday, the 29th.  All pumpkins not picked up by 12:00pm will be discarded. 


There will be a collection bin at check-in for “Coats 4 Kids”.

We will be collecting coats for men, women and children to be given to families in need in our community. Any and all coats in good condition are needed and all will be dry-cleaned courtesy of Anton’s Cleaners.

They will be handed out during check-in on the night of the event.

What is the purpose of the Haunted Car Crawl?

The Haunted Car Crawl event is a fundraiser as well as a community event that is sponsored by Norfolk Community League and Norfolk Lions. All proceeds go back into the community via grants that are administered through Norfolk Community League and Norfolk Lions. In the past, Norfolk schools, the library, Stony Brook, the food pantry, and the Senior Center (just to name a few), have all benefited by funds raised.

Why can't you sell more tickets?

Everyone who is lending a hand are all volunteers. Even after the last person has driven by there is still work to be done, often well past 10:00pm. While scaring people is super-fun, it is also exhausting! It's hard being "in character" every time the vehicle goes by. It's too much to ask people to stay for longer than the five plus hours they already do.
Can you do the event for an additional night?

It takes over 100 volunteers to make this event happen and often it is a struggle to get enough volunteers to keep things running safely and smoothly for even one night. It would be very difficult to get another group of volunteers for an additional evening. The event takes place on Norfolk Public School property and set up begins the afternoon before after school and clean up lasts until the next Sunday. They need their property back in order for school on Monday morning.

I never received my tickets? 

All tickets were sent electronically to the email address used during registration. You should have instantly received an email confirming your purchase including a PDF attachment of the tickets. Check your Junk/SPAM folder as well and if you still did not receive them please contact the Lions Webmaster

Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for the Haunted Car Crawl! We have taken your comments and feedback into consideration. Although the event has been running for over 20 years, it is a continuous process of improvement.
