WILTON, Conn. -- Not everything was scary at the sold-out Fright Night at Ambler Farm in Wilton over the weekend.

In fact, the bonfire for roasting marshmallows for s'mores was downright heart-warming — and warm — on a chilly night as a crowd of kids turned out to celebrate Halloween.

"We've had a lot of kids, I think it's fabulous," said Margot Silvian, a new volunteer this year.

Matthew Schmitt, another volunteer, has been helping at Fright Night for nine years. "I have been tending the fires now, and waiting for the kids to come do their s'mores," Schmitt said.

Fright Night is filled with mystery and fun for kids in grades 3 to 6. The event included telling spooky ghost stories in the white barn, eating doughnuts from a string for a contest, limbo dancing, roasting s'mores and even guessing how many candies were in a jar.

"I have been volunteering for eight years now. The kids go for a hayride, then they go hear the scary stories, and then they do the s'mores," says Doug Johnson, another volunteer. "It's a great program. My kids were in the apprentice program when they were growing up. And now they are managing the event."
