The Huntingburg Public Library invited guests into an escape room on Saturday morning during Haunted Huntingburg. Equipped with flashlights, participants had to search the room for clues to solve how to get out — the deadline was 15 minutes — before they were eaten by zombies. Zach Harris, left, Kaitlyn Chandler, 6-year-old Aubrey Hargett, her mother Melissa and sister, 11-year-old Ayla, all of Huntingburg, looked in books for clues. “It was hard,” Melissa said after being let out. “I don’t feel very smart coming out.” The library will have two other days for people to try the escape room — from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 23, and Monday, Oct. 30.

Blakely McLemore of Huntingburg, 11, searched along the bookshelves for clues to help him get out of the room.


The Huntingburg Chamber of Commerce held it's second Spooky Cake Contest during Haunted Huntingburg on Saturday afternoon. Eight different types of cakes were entered and varied from a pumpkin to bleeding eyeball. Ayla Ring, 11, worked to fix her spider cake while Bryce Peters, 5, both of Holland, watched. "We had a transportation error," Ayla's mom, Lindsie said. "We hit a bump and his leg broke."
