Haunted happenings being reported at the Riverside Park Amphitheater

Halloween Costume Parade and Haunted Trail starts Saturday

RUSHVILLE — The City of Rushville and the Parks and Recreation Department invite everyone to the 12th Annual Halloween Costume Parade on Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Rushville Riverside Park Amphitheater. In addition, there will be a free Haunted Trail and hayride on Saturday, Oct. 19 and again Saturday, Oct. 26 beginning at 7:30 p.m., sponsored by the Rushville Street Department and the Rushville Parks Department.

The Halloween Costume Parade will begin with sign-ups at 4 p.m., the parade at 5 p.m. and judging for all ages, including adults at 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 26 at the Riverside Park Amphitheater. In case of rain, meet at the Livestock Pavilion at the Rush County Fairgrounds. There will be treat bags and a prize for each child. Costume judging is for all ages, including adults.

According to unconfirmed reports of the haunted happenings, there has been an unexplained event in Riverside Park. Jemmy Miller, the Rushville Street Department commissioner, has reported finding a house trailer in the park.

"There it was just sitting there half way down in the creek," Miller reports in Halloween fashion. "I couldn't believe my eyes!" he said. "It was really foggy that morning. It rained a lot that night, but not that much to float a trailer down "Flatrock."

Miller immediately reported this to Mayor Mike Pavey who upon hearing the news of another unwanted building in a city park, ordered it removed that same day by Miller. The street commissioner said he would take care of it.

"The house trailer was just sitting there at an odd angle, halfway down in the creek he said "sort of like Noah's Ark," describes Miller.

Speculation went on as to how and why it was there. No answer was apparent. "The task of moving it out of the park would not be easy with all these trees," he said.
