The child on the bicycle didn’t seem overly worried about the tall, mummy-like creature that was spotted this weekend at Cowan Lake State Park.


Stacy Knapp, left, is busy on Friday carving a pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern at the Cowan Lake State Park campgrounds. Her activity was during the annual fall weekend campout when campers go all out to decorate their camp sites with Halloween-themed objects. Vikki Knapp, right, of Middletown, is also part of the Knapp family enjoying the get-away. Another family — the Kramer family from Anderson Township — was expecting to welcome 35 members to the campgrounds, a longstanding autumn tradition for them.


This character talks to passersby, as he refers to a book with the title “Dark Magic.”


One gets the impression a carriage ride with this driver could be a one-way trip.
