CSCC proudly presents a Halloween tradition -- the 56th anniversary Ghouls Gambol Rally. Ghouls Gambol is a fun drive on scenic country roads, through autumn-colored countryside. This easy tour-style TSD road rally is about 100 miles long and takes between three to four hours to complete, including a mid-rally break. Expect all treats, no tricks, on this fun Halloween outing. As a special treat this year, the rally ends at Spirit of Halloweentown in St. Helens!
There will be prizes for top finishers and best decorated cars. Who says you don’t have a ghost of a chance? You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll howl at the moon! Well, maybe not that last part since it will be daylight.
