WINSLOW — There are shrieking witches, motion-activated monsters, vampires, ghosts, spiders, skeletons, a small haunted house and a cemetery on way to the pumpkin patch.

That’s at Fred Nassar’s Haunted Trail and Pumpkin farm at 882 Garland Road in Winslow.

Nassar, a former teacher in Winslow schools, has operated his free attraction for 25 years each Halloween. Kids and parents in need of a pumpkin or a mild scare can visit the farm during daylight hours every day from now until Halloween.

Kids can pick their own pumpkin and pay for it at the stand, Nassar said.

“I love doing this, being outdoors and even making a little money,” Nassar said along the wooded trail. “I get a lot of repeat families so it has become a tradition. It’s simple, fun and it works.”
