This Weekend: Haunted Halloween at the Plainfield Rescue Squad!

This Friday and Saturday (October 25 and 26), the Plainfield Rescue Squad (located at 700 West 7th Street in Plainfield--corner of Spooner Avenue) will host the PRS Cadet and Explorer 2nd Annual Haunted Rescue Squad and Harvest Festival! Last year, on a rainy and eerie night, the squad played host to hundreds of Plainfielders who came out in support of this fundraiser. I was one of those Plainfielders--it was awesomely scary, and I will be back this year for more! 

However, due to popular demand, the squad has extended the event to two days this year--as they note: "double the fright and double the fun, with different scares and themes for each night!" 

You are in for some fantastic chills and thrills as you enter the spooky atmosphere and try to make your way through the building as zombies, ghosts, vampires, and other creepy entities greet you in the haunted hallways. Don't forget to peer inside the haunted ambulance! If you are the non-scary type, you can still attend and enjoy the Harvest Festival portion, with free movies and popcorn! 

Below are the times:

Fri, Oct. 25: 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm I Sat, Oct. 26: 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The cost of admission is $5.00 per person at the door--if you bring a donation of a can/box/package of non-perishable food with you, the cost of admission is only $3.00.* Bring a few extra dollars if you want to purchase some of the Halloween-based refreshments. Come out and support our rescue squad--I look forward to seeing you there!
