Wiard's 'Night Terrors' Offers Many Scares

Oct 28, 2014

If you're looking for a haunted attraction to get you in the Halloween spirit, you don't have to look far to find one of the best, anywhere.


By day families flock to Wiard's Orchards and Country Fair to pick apples and pumpkins, check out the cider mill and buy delicious baked goods.  But as 89.1 WEMU's Bob Eccles found out, when the sun goes down, Night Terrors begins.

A little rain might be the least of your worries during trick-or-treating this evening.

DTE Energy warns of the potential for high winds, and suggests people who will be out trick-or-treating this evening get their goodie-grabbing done earlier rather than later, when winds will pick up.

High winds can lead to downed power lines. 

DTE spokesperson Erica Donerson  says if you come across a downed power line, stay away from it.

She says if the winds become strong in your area, it may be better to stay inside rather than risk coming across a downed power line.
