WESTFORD, Mass. ( – Halloween season is here and that means it’s time for candy, costumes and haunted attractions.

Some people like to let the spooky scary skeletons come to your house on Oct. 31 or you’re going to find the frights yourself there are plenty of options.

One place to go for a ghoulishly good time is Witch’s Woods in Westford.

“Halloween and Haunted Houses are a New England tradition in the fall season. Witch’s Woods takes this concept and transforms this tradition into family entertainment for all ages,” Al Fletcher, President and General Manager of Nashoba Valley Ski Area, said.
