Along with the usual Nightmare on Fairgrounds Road haunted house on Friday and Saturday nights, on Oct 11th & 12th, there will be a special haunted event on Sunday, Oct 13th. If you have kids that are afraid of the dark, Nightmare will be open from 5 to 6:30 p.m. with the Lights On (and less scary characters.)

Sunday will also be a special fundraising night for one of the longtime Nightmare volunteers - Dan "the Chainsaw Guy" Carlson who has had health problems. Come out and "Stand with Dan" and go through the haunt. Donations from Sunday evening will help his family with medical expenses.

Admission for the Light's On event will be $10 for adults and $5 for kids 12 and under. The lights go off and the spooks come out at 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. with admission $12 for regular passes and $15 for speed passes. Friday and Saturday the hours are 7 to 10 p.m. For more information, visit www.nightmareonfairgroundsroad.com.
