Do you just love a good scare? As Halloween approaches, we see spooky ghosts hanging in yards, blow-up monsters towering in the driveways, tombstones appear on front lawns, and haunted houses and trails pop up to give a fright to children on up to adults.  Below are some frightful haunts as well as some family friendly festivals in and around the Woodbridge, Virginia neighborhood this weekend.  What one is your favorite?
