Local businesses making "scary" money this Halloween

SANGER, Calif. (KFSN) -- With Halloween just around the corner some local businesses are reaping the benefits of the spooky holiday.

As the sun starts to set the ghouls at Hobbs Grove are coming out of the shadows. In Sanger the paychecks come from the screams of returning customers.

For business owners Halloween is a profitable time, but at Hillcrest Pumpkin Patch, "The only thing we charge for are train rides which are four dollars...hay rides which are three dollars and pumpkins are competitive. So it's not a big money maker," said Melissa Bautista, Hillcrest Pumpkin Patch owner.

Bautista says she still gets paid. Just in a different kind of currency. "If I had a penny for every photograph that was of a baby we'd be doing really really well."

Each Halloween attraction making money and memories.

Saturday night for both local attractions was their busiest night so far this year. They are expecting a lot of people to turn out next Saturday on Halloween.
