The event is called Halloween Illuminations, it takes place October 12th -14th from 6 PM-9 PM each night.  Newburgh will be lighting up the woods along the red bridge area of the Rivertown Trail.  They'll have carved pumpkins, friendly ghosts, and over 10,000 lights illuminating the trail. The Halloween Illuminations event is a family-friendly event, and they say that there will be no jump scares or anything like that. You'll go and enjoy a self-guided tour through the lights and check out the spooky scenery in the process.
