Plus, there are ghosts, witches, classic movie monsters and pirates to add to the thrills and chills.The Batman Band will be playing. Look for the troll in the stream, surprises in the Winding Way and some very scary line dancers.Before or after the underground adventure, taste the spook-tacular treats of the benefit bake sale and enjoy music, clowns and more.Halloween at Howe Caverns is a fabulous tradition, an evening of great family fun,” said Howe Cavern’s General Manager Robert Holt. “More importantly, the entire evening is a charity benefit, with this year’s proceeds going to Schoharie County ARC.
