Looking for some great Halloween fun this October? You won’t want to miss the Kitsap Haunted Fairgrounds! This popular event has been running since 2003 at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds. Put on almost by a partnership between volunteers and the Kitsap Country Parks and Recreation, this long standing event has drawn a crowd every year since its inception.
This past year, the group has joined forces with the Kingston-North Kitsap Rotary to create the non-profit company Kitsap Haunted Productions. The collaboration with the Rotary intends to directly benefit the various Rotary efforts for the community, while growing the event every year.
Every year the event adds another chapter to the fictional Kitsap Fairgrounds story, with recent years revolving around the infamous (fictional) fairgrounds employees Otis and Leester. The two gruesome characters are suspected of playing a role in the disappearance of locals and tourists alike. With law enforcement too terrified to approach their barn, the horrors have continued every year since the bodies of a missing family were found at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds.
This year promises to yet another healthy dose of creepiness, as the plot has thickened once again. A recent meteor shower has deposited an unknown slimy compound all over the Fairgrounds. The slime seems to have regenerative properties, strong enough to raise the dead…which isn’t good considering the number of ‘missing persons’ there are buried around Otis and Leester’s abode….
With general admission at just $12, you can be sure that this is great value for the whole family. There’s even a live performance to keep you entertained while you wait in line! The event runs every Friday and Saturday night from Friday October 11th until Saturday Nov. 2nd (Post-Halloween dates are just $7!), with a special event planned for Thursday Oct 31st.
There’s no official age requirement for the event, but attendees should be warned that this event is not for the meek. There is a special “lights on” showing from 5-6pm that is a little bit more kid-friendly, but still spooky. From 6pm till 11pm you can expect to be startled, shocked, and scared. Come if you dare…
