Your New To-Do List for Autumn 2019

Starbucks at Waugh Chapel Towne Centre

Are you a regular at Starbucks? Have you heard about the must-try Pumpkin Spice Latte, or PSL? It’s definitely a “must-have!” Every year, Starbucks fulfills its customers needs with this luxurious beverage. Their signature blend of espresso and steamed milk is combined with the delectable concoction of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. You can even splurge and order your latte with whipped cream infused with pumpkin pie spices! Don’t miss out on this seasonal and limited offer. Try this while supplies last! Also keep your eyes open for some pumpkin muffins and scones!

Haunted Adventures and Hayrides

Are you looking for a fright? Gambrills, MD is certainly providing spooky fun this upcoming Halloween Season! If you’re brave enough, then check out some of these exciting attractions:

Markoff’s Haunted Forest

If you’re not too scared, stop by at dusk this upcoming October 4th, 2019! Conquer the two trails filled with nightmarish demons, ghastly ghouls, and evil clowns. Afterwards, go into the Town and explore the Field of Corn. Markoff’s will leave you gasping for air, so purchase tickets online for a fun adventure rush! Beyond their haunts, there will be performers, ziplines, survival games, and food, (after you’ve worked up an appetite)!

Legends of the Fog

Are you an avid fan of horror and Halloween? The Legends of Fog is opening this September 27th to fulfill your spooky needs! Buy your tickets online for only $30 to skip the box office! 1 ticket pays for all 4 adventures, so get excited! Survive zombie hordes on the Haunted Hayride, check-in at the Farewell Hotel and get lost in the 70 door maze, navigate and hide in the Cornstalkers Corn Maze, and enter the Sinister Circus! If these attractions aren’t scary enough, then stop by during Blackout Weekend on November 2nd and 3rd. Patrons will experience new fears by navigating the entire attraction in the dark! Are you brave enough?
