If you (or a friend, cousin, ex, sibling or child; we don't care, everybody has a birthday) are lucky enough to have a Fall birthday, boy do we have stuff for you. Even if you don't have a birthday this month, these guys are great and deserve a visit.
It isn't too late to put some fright in your night!
You Capital District folks should hit up the Field of Horrors in Troy. They have a Haunted Hay Ride, a tour of the Condemned Manor and will take 5 bucks off your birthday admission.
Just a little to the west is The Darkside of the Valley in Herkimer. A one of a kind haunt, the Herkimer County Haunted House will give you free admission and there are always discounts for veterans and first responders.
Neither of these are recommended for children (unless your kids are like ours) and, unfortunately, there won't be any refunds if they do their jobs too well.
You have been warned.
