Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City, N.J., celebrated Halloween with its annual Haunted Hanger Oct. 28, 2011.

The Haunted Hanger is open to all active duty and dependants, William J. Hughes Technical Center employees and members of the 177th Fighter Wing, New Jersey Air National Guard.

The event is put together by a group of air station personnel led by Lt. Dominic Bucciarelli, the air station’s project officer. This year, they had three bounce rides for children, numerous games, face painting and a haunted house with volunteers guaranteed to scare any person who dared to walk through.

“The air station has been putting this on for a number of years,” said Capt. Nicholas Bartolotta, commanding officer of the air station. “Every year our project officer makes it bigger and better, and this year it’s no exception. We are always looking forward to having the entire technical center; the 177 and the airport members come together to enjoy something like this.”
