From Sept. 26 through Nov. 3, Thursdays through Sundays, the public will be invited to explore three themed haunted houses at the “Fear District” — Vampire Village, Deadman’s Wharf and Scare Acres. Each of these attractions will be 3,600 square feet.

Scary movies will also be shown at the beer garden every Thursday during the month of October. Visitors will see features like Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th.
