Costumed characters greet guests at Kennywood's Happy Hauntings on Sat., Oct. 7
Happy Hauntings, a new daytime Halloween event aimed at kids under 10, opened this weekend at Kennywood Park in West Mifflin. Photo intern Jake Mysliwczyk was there to document the scene on Saturday as kids, many dressed in Halloween costumes, decorated pumpkins, went on hay rides and explored Kiddieland, newly decorated for the fall.

You can check out Happy Hauntings from 12-4 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday through Oct. 29. Click here for more information.
