Friday The 13th in Blairstown

Friday the 13th is typically known as a day of dread. However, in Blairstown, it is practically a holiday.

Fans still visit the New Jersey township, where portions of the original 1980 horror film “Friday the 13th” were filmed.

The Blairstown Diner was one of the spots used in the film. The diner sees a rise in business when the date comes around, particularly among visitors driving out to see the movie at nearby Roy’s Hall.

Every year on this day, a man dressed as the infamous Jason Voorhees wanders the streets, taking pictures with fans and scaring unsuspecting residents.

Buck Hill Brewery and Restaurant will be hosting a Friday the 13th themed night tonight, and you can check out the details below.

To take part in some Friday the 13th fun, head over to Blairstown tonight.
