As the light of summer fades, the nights grow longer… and darker—the ghouls and goblins at the Colusa Fairgrounds begin their quest of the haunting Hayride trail.
For its second year, the Haunted Paintball Hayride will return with an exciting ride of terror.
“This year it’s more than just zombies, it’s bigger and more freighting,” said Colusa County Fair CEO, Jonathan Howard.
The Haunted Paintball Hayride kicks off on September 30 and opens every Friday and Saturday evening through October 29.
“Tickets for the hayride are on sale now,” said Howard as he encourages everyone to get their early. Tickets are $15 per person and can be purchased online at www.colusacountyfair.com or by calling the fair office at (530) 458-2641.
“Reservations are first-come-first-served, and pre-sold tickets guarantee a spot on one of the trailers for one of the 25-minute rides on the date requested. Otherwise, we can’t guarantee a place or a requested date,” said Howard.
Howard also commented that the fall activities, such as the Pumpkin Village and the Haunted Paintball Hayride are assembled mostly by volunteers.
“The volunteers and the Colusa Fairgrounds management and staff have been preparing for these two events most of the spring and summer,” said Howard. “We couldn’t do it without the help of volunteers and of course our sponsors.
Howard added that if anyone is interested in being part of the Pumpkin Village or the Haunted Paintball Hayride to contact him.
“Our goal is to continue to improve, grow and ‘fine-tune’ these events,” Howard said. “We want to see them become the “go-to” events for fall in this area,” he said. “I think we’ve made a good start,” he added.
