Boney Island describes itself as an Animated Halloween Display for Fun-Loving Skeletons of all Ages.
Final night, 10/31 from 6-10 pm. Free.
This is a classic spooky yard with a good measure of kid friendly Halloween charm and lots and lots of skeletons. Boney Island really is a thing to delight the Halloween senses with all the animatronics and special effects. Best of all, its free and open to walk up and experience for yourself. This isn’t your typical themed park excursion. To the contrary, Boney Island is a drive up, park, and spend some time taking in the sights. Hosted in a residential community with lots of neighbors, so be sure to put your courtesy hat on.
