Teens and adults are invited to participate in the Field of Screams on Friday, Oct. 26 through Sunday, Oct. 28 and again on Halloween.
TASCO presents the 7th annual Field of Screams featuring “Quarantine,” from 7 p.m. to midnight at Boyd Hill Environmental Studies Area, 2900 31st Street South. A special encore night will be featured on Wednesday, Oct. 31, 7 p.m. to midnight.
Each night, “Quarantine” challenges participants to navigate through the dark woods, escape the village, break out of the decontamination tent, escape the safe house and flee to safety. Also featured is the “No Way Out” maze. Participants are exposed to darkness, loud noises, bright lights, wooded trails, and intense scare zones. May not be suitable for young children, parental discretion is advised.
Tickets are $10 for teens, $15 for adults, subject to availability. This year officials are taking credit cards as well as cash.

Be sure to stop by Newton's Haunts at the 5600 block of Newton Ave S. There are two haunted houses. Watch the attached video and hear from Nolan Sloan with "The Midway." Stop by for a good scare and help a good cause. Sloan says they're asking for $2 per person to help raise money for the Fire Explorers Post 945. There's also a special bonus this year! For $5 you can go through the haunted house with a firefighter. So, if there's any ladies out there who are affraid to go in alone, donate a little more and get an escort to help you through.
Sanitarium is open from 7:30 - 10 p.m. and the Midway is open 7:30 - 10:30 p.m. Check out the following dates for both haunted houses on Friday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 27.
