The Sedalia Noonday Optimist Club's annual Haunted Hayride is Saturday at the Missouri State Fairgrounds. This fun Halloween event has been entertaining families for over three decades!

"It started out at the Haunted Forest out at the old quarry about thirty-some years ago, and it's kind of graduated into our hayride," said Jason Meyers with the Sedalia Noonday Optimist Club. Meyers estimates attendance to have been around a thousand people each of the past few years.

Kids 5 and under are free.The hayride, a hot dog, chips, drink and candy are included with tickets. Tickets are not available in advance for this year's hayride.
