I won’t say that Halloween is my favorite holiday, but I think it’s fair to say it’s the one that I have the most fun with.
Horror movies, trick-or-treating, dressing up and, of course, haunted houses.
All of it comes together to make for a holiday that offers photographic opportunities like no other.
So when I heard about the haunted trail put on by the senior class at Lynn Camp High School (Knox County), I thought: “What better opportunity to celebrate Halloween than a photo blog of teenagers dressed as monsters?”
The group at Lynn Camp did not disappoint.
With makeup, latex and fake blood in hand, the students set about making themselves as freaky as possible for the haunted trail that the school puts on every year.
“There’s a lot of clowns this year,” said Jodie Carnes, a family and consumer science teacher at the school. “Clowns are the in thing right now.”
The money from the haunted trail, which takes place every weekend during the month of October, goes toward the senior class trip.
“Every penny goes to the kids,” said Earl Gregory, an art teacher and senior adviser at Lynn Camp who oversees the haunted trail. “This year, we’re hoping on raising around $16,000 and that will go towards their trip. They’ll visit three cities – New York City, Boston and Washington, D.C.”
