WEST PALM BEACH — Fright Nights, the largest haunted house event in West Palm Beach, will celebrate 20 years of fear starting in October. For the fourth time, Fright Nights has been named as a “Top Haunted Attraction” by the Haunted Attraction Association (HAA), the official association in the haunt industry. To be designated, attractions across the country must be recognized as a member of HAA while also satisfying a list of 10 criteria related to the mission of HAA: to protect customers, promote haunted attractions, and educate industry experts.
Organizers of Fright Nights are inviting the public to come and celebrate its 20th anniversary, which marks an era of terror! For two decades, Fright Nights has been the scariest haunted event in South Florida featuring three haunts filled with creepy characters, scare zones, carnival rides, live entertainment and food. This year’s frights include three haunted houses: Country Bill’s Meat, Dead of Winter and Sirens’ Revenge, each with their own maze of scares.
Fright Nights opens with a Behind the Scenes look on Thursday, Oct. 6 (reservations required; limited attendance). Opening night is Friday, Oct. 7, and will continue to be held on Oct. 7-8,13-15, 20-22, 27 and 29. Gates open at 6 p.m. The haunted houses will open at 7 p.m. Please note: Fright Nights will be closed on Oct. 28 due to the sold-out Stevie Nicks concert at iThink Amphitheatre, which is located on the fairgrounds.
South Florida Fairgrounds is located at 9067 Southern Blvd. in West Palm Beach.
