Are are looking for a great opportunity to market your organization while supporting the community?  Look no further!  The Haunted Forest is a Vermont favorite, attracting thousands of guests with great visibility and reach throughout the community.  Proceeds from ticket sales help Williston by supporting The Catamount Family Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to keeping land open for outdoor recreational activities such as x-country skiing and mountain biking.  Proceeds also benefit students in the arts, and the event provides kids with the chance to learn about and participate in true community theater.
