JOHNSTOWN - If you are looking for a traditional setting for a Halloween night, you couldn't do any better than taking your family to Bakerfield Farms.
Amanda Baker and her extended family are throwing open the gates to the farm for some down-home fun, decorations, and of course treats on October 31 from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The farm is located at 2046 County Road 44 north of Angelo's Restaurant.
Since COVID regulations have put a damper on traditional trick-or-treating, the Baker family decided to offer an event which could be enjoyed by children of all ages. There will be horses to see and pet, trails to follow, a canteen, campfire and hot chocolate to enjoy. Candy will be given out by gloved volunteers using tongs to pick up and deliver the individual treats, which will be in original packaging.
"It's tough enough to have a little fun during a pandemic," says Baker, who has enlisted the help of her parents, grandparents and several friends. "We (as a society) had to cancel Easter and nobody knows what Christmas will bring, so we said we had to do something to make kids' lives as normal as possible, and Halloween is just the right time to do that."
The farm boards horses and has several acres of trails. They decided to host the event starting in the afternoon so visitors could come in the daylight to enjoy those opportunities. Also, says Baker, it will give parents a chance to take their smallest children to other events being held in the area and still be home before dark.
