Halloween is a little over a month away and the Hawes Farm in Anderson is gearing up for it.

The Hawes Farm is sparing no expense for this year’s Halloween. They will have a zipline, corn mazes, a train ride and even allow their guests to go up in a helicopter.

They carved out a zombie image out of the cornfield. It also says “Zombie Attack” at the top of the field.

One of the new things they are introducing this year is a hoedown dance for opening weekend. Owner Greg Hawes said he is looking forward to his new ride, The Zombie Slayer.

"So we got 32 guns on these trailers and [we are going to] haul these kids down to the orchard and through the woods along the Sacramento River and they shoot zombies,” said Hawes. “We had a few zombies coming up the river so we are going to take them there and we let the kids shoot them."

Hawes Farms will be open every Friday-Sunday until Halloween. Tickets will be $12.50 per person. The helicopter rides will be available every other week.

As of right now, there is no set price for the helicopter ride but Hawes said last year it cost $40 per person.
