Halloween Attractions: Haunted Houses Day #3

We are on day number 3 of our haunted house countdown.   If we haven’t mentioned your favorite Halloween attractions, shout it out.    Let us know what we’re missing.

For today’s haunted house, we are heading all the way down to Baton Rouge, LA,  a city historically known for ghosts, voodoo, and things that go bump in the night.    Baton Rouge really knows how to get the fright on!

The 13th Gate Haunted House, located at  832 Saint Philip Street in downtown Baton Rouge, is one of the most frightening themed indoor and outdoor haunted attractions that is guaranteed to bring your worst nightmares to life.   From crawling though a Crematory oven and an old hearse to being lost in dark underground tunnels, haunted asylums, claustrophobic cellars,  swamp invested with real snakes, this 40,000 square foot haunted house is definitely not recommended for the faint of heart. 

During the Halloween season, over 100 professional actors, 12 special effects makeup and airbrush artists, and several costume specialist work together to bring this terrifying show to life each night.

We’re having a great weekend.   Get outdoors, do something frightful, and tell us about it.

If your plans include a party or company in the yard or if you’re a caterer with planned events, don’t forget your Bite-Lite® Natural Mosquito Repellent Candles.   Light the candles about 20 minutes before you  plan on being outdoors.   These natural repellents are based on recent research, using essential oils that disable the mosquito’s sensors.   If you think it’s too cold for mosquitoes, read my blog on hardy mosquitoes that can survive in the snow.     Bite-Lite® natural repellents are available at your local Retailer or can be purchased on our Products page.

It’s still warm enough to barbeque or just have friends over for Halloween.   With the unseasonably warm weather and the recent rains, mosquitoes are still out on the prowl.   Stay protected with Bite-Lite® Natural Mosquito Repellent Candles available at your local Retailer or on our Products page.

Enjoy An Old Fashion Country Fair

As Labor Day approaches, County and State Fairs are just getting started.   Produce has had a full season to grow and it’s now time to bake that blue ribbon pie.   We all know about our own local fairs and festivals, but where do we turn for options outside your environs?

You can check out the calendar at County Fairgrounds.   Type in the name of the state you’re interested in, click enter, and start making your plans for the weekend. htpt://www.countyfairgrounds.net/calendar.html

Our personal favorite fair is the Big E, in Springfield MA, also known as The Eastern States Exposition. http://www.thebige.com/fair/

The Big E is billed as “New England‘s Great State fair, representing all six of the New England states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.   Each of these New England states are prominently represented at the Big E which happens to be the 6th largest agricultural fair in the country.

Enjoy the season.   Visit the fairs.   When you get home, light up Bite-Lite® Natural Mosquito Repellent Candles, and take a cool drink out onto the porch.   Keep the mosquitoes at a distance.   The season isn’t over until the first frost.   Look for our natural repellents candles at your local retailer or find them  on our online store.
