The last night for the annual haunted house is Oct. 31. Many area residents have taken on the challenge at Wolfe Mountain Entertainment (WME). In conjunction with River City Players (RCP), the two organizations are once again presenting a haunted house with this year’s theme being “Face Your Darkest Fears.”

More than 200 people already braved the path of the haunted house this past weekend and the reviews have been pouring in that this year’s experience is bigger, better, and scarier than last year’s.

“As of this time last year, we’ve already had more people attending this year,” said Dan Dunham of WME.

RCP and WME are gearing up for more brave souls to travel through the haunted house this coming weekend. Hours of operation for the last two days will be from 7-10 p.m., on Oct. 29, and Oct. 31, at WME in Pomeroy, located at 320 East Main Street. The cost of admission is $5.

After last year’s success, the two groups decided to make the haunted house an annual event for the area.

“We had such a great turnout last year, it was an easy decision to hold another haunted house this year,” said RCP President Nathan Jeffers.

Janis Carnahan, another RCP member, worked closely with Dunham developing and designing all the elements for this year’s event.

“Plans have been in the works for this years event since early this year,” said RCP Member Janis Carnahan, who worked closely with Dunham on the event. “We’ve been hard at work making this year’s haunted house bigger and scarier than last year’s and I think we’ve succeeded.”

In addition to the haunted house, WME is also hosting a Halloween Kids Carnival on the front lawn of WME from 6:30-9 p.m. on the same dates as the haunted house. The carnival will feature games, prizes, candy, concessions, and characters.
