Very scary: The “Haunted Forest” is once again taking over Algonkian Park for what has become an annual scarefest, aided in part by the ghoulish acting talents of current and former area high school students. The 2012 scare team members include Park View High School graduates Merrell Watts and Zach Imler, Potomac Falls High School graduates Bob Galvin and Cat Watson and current PFHS student Luis Sanchez. The final nights of frights take place Friday through Sunday, Oct. 26 – 28, and on Wednesday, Oct. 31, beginning at 7 p.m. The last ticket will be sold at 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; the last ticket will be sold at 10 on Sunday and on Wednesday, also known as Halloween night.
