For Immediate Release: October 2, 2013
It is with great regret that the creatures of the Creepy Walk in the Woods must announce the closure of the 5th annual Halloween celebration.
Although most mortals believe that the events of the September flood were caused by Mother Nature, our independent investigation points to a much more likely cause: THE WITCHES.
Evidence shows that the Witches of Savage Woods accidentally untied the Giant’s Shoe. The Giant tripped and fell into the Fairies where the Frog Prince may or may not have kissed one of the Little Pigs. Little Pig ran away with the Spoon, the Dish fell in love with the Big Bad Wolf knocking him off his feet and under the Three Bear’s House.
Goldie, after being caught red-handed in the porridge, took off with the Dead Bride. Both are reportedly on the lam in Estes Park with their fugitive families.
The final evidence that this is entirely the fault of the witches is that it appears the witches tried to correct their mistake by casting a spell. Because Witches are off-balance they mixed up more than one spell and put all the Zombies to sleep for one year.
And because everyone knows you cannot have a Creepy Walk in the Woods without Zombies, we decided to close for the season.
The Sergeant at Arms for the Woods has confiscated all spell books from the witches until they get their balance back and promise to stop untying shoes.
In flood free years the woods opens to children one afternoon in October for trick-or-treating from classic fairy tale characters. At night the woods morph into the more sinister side of fairy tales, the way they were meant to be: scary, bloody and gut-filled (only for those brave enough to enter.)
Our creatures have pledged to be back in 2014 for Part 2 of the 5th Annual Creepy Walk in the Woods.
The woods is located at 1750 Savage Road, just 2 miles west of Loveland on Highway 34 or the 2nd right hand turn off of Glade Road.
