Boy Scout Troop 477 will host its annual Haunted Farm Tour Saturday, Oct. 26, at the historical Donaldson-Bannister Farm house and the enchanted exterior gardens.

The seasonal event provides visitors a chance to engage in a treasure hunt through the building and help stranded pirates find pieces to rebuild their marooned ship.

Those who successfully find the hidden pieces will be in line for further treasures.

In addition to the treasure hunt, there will be games, music, snacks and food at an onsite food court, activities and crafts for adults and children.  

This year there will be a new addition of a petting zoo.

Admission is free and activities range in cost from 50 cents for games to $3 for the Pirates Haunted Tour. Costumes are welcome. 

“This is the seventh year we’ve thrown this fall event here at the Donaldson-Bannister Farm as our main fundraiser,” said Boys Scout Troop 477 Scoutmaster Barry Deutsch. “We’re so proud of what the boys have done to make this a banner event for the city. This year is very exciting as we get to help showcase the significant improvements that Dunwoody Preservation Trust has accomplished over the past year to make the farm a destination and a significant historical landmark here in our hometown.

The event runs from 3 to 9 p.m. at the Donaldson-Bannister Farm, 4831 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road in Dunwoody.
