Prepared to be spooked! ‘The River Haunt’ opens tonight in Batesville


The ghosts and goblins will come to life Saturday night at “The River Haunt, the annual haunted house that benefits Main Street Batesville and the historic district. The event, held in the old Batesville Jaycees building at 570 Stadium Dr. by the White River, will be open each Friday and Saturday for the rest of October at 7 p.m.
