Mike Jones, a member of the Russell Downtown Business Association, said they are hopeful for a good turnout.

“The Shriners have a train that they use for parades and so forth, and will are going to use that as a haunted train ride. We just want the people to come out,” Jones said.

“This is our first attempt at something like this, and we are expecting to have a great time. There will be fun for everyone,” Jones said.
