A sign of the season The Center for Science Teaching and Learning (CSTL) is putting the finishing touches on this year’s SpookyFest, its main fundraising event for the year. “Each year it gets bigger,” said Ray Ann Havasy, director of CSTL, “and this year we are adding ‘The Maze of Madness,’ which is not for the faint of heart.” SpookyFest features a haunted walk in the woods, a non-scary walk in the woods, live animals, crafts, The Mystic Den with face painting and fortune telling, and the Maze of Madness. Admission is $10/person and runs on Oct. 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at Tanglewood Preserve in Rockville Centre. For more information visit www.CSTL.org or call (516) 764-0045.
