Let the Haunting Begin

(Le Mars) -- If you're ready for a good scare, you have two opportunities in Le Mars this year to walk through a Haunted House.

After years at the Shelter House at the Le Mars Pit, HYPER's Haunted House has moved downtown to 24 Plymouth Street SW right next to Bad Habit Boutique. HYPER secretary Miranda Hall says that the new location was sought out so that more people will be able to attend.

Also new this year for HYPER is the addition of the Haunted House being open Halloween Night 7-10pm as well as the Saturday night before Halloween, Saturday October 26th from 7-11pm. Admission is $3.

HYPER, which stands for: Helping Young Professionals Energize the Region, is a non-profit group that organizes events and fundraisers to give back to the community.

 

And then, just blocks away, there's a Haunted House at the Plymouth County Museum.  In it's second year, this scary night at the museum will be put on for one night only, Saturday, October 26th from 7-11pm.

Karen Paulson and Brian Nitzschke are co-chairing the Museum's Haunted House and Brian says working on something like this a labor of love for him.

There will be all kinds of creepy special effects including fog machines and strobe lights.

Even the spot in the museum where this is being held sounds creepy...It's in the basement of the 1905 section.
