Let Your Nightmare Begin on Princeton, IL's Fairground Road

Let the spooky festivities begin at the Nightmare on Fairgrounds Road event, this weekend from October 11th– 13th and the rest of the month, every Friday and Saturday in Princeton, IL. The goblins will be working overtime to make sure you have a frightful weekend. 


On Saturday, the first ever Halloween Parade will be held downtown Princeton beginning at 5:30 p.m. The lineup will begin on Crown & Main street and proceed to the Courthouse and west on Park Ave to Fairgrounds. 

Dancing witches known as The Hocus Pocus Hags, has joined the parade and will later on perform on the fairground. Come on by and watch all 35 witches do amazing moves with their broomsticks. 


If you’re really looking for a good scare, there will be a haunted house on Friday and Saturday that will leave you terrified. Then, on Sunday there will be a special haunted event. 

However, this event is still for everyone. If you have any kids that are afraid of the dark, Nightmare will be open from 5 to 6:30 p.m. with Lights On and less scary characters. 



Sunday will also be a fundraising night for one of the longtime Nightmare volunteers. Come out and “Stand with Dan,” who is also known as Dan “The Chainsaw Guy” Carlson, who has had health problems. Donations from Sunday evening will help his family with medical expenses.
