“Monster Bash” to begin soon

Posted in All Education

The “Monster Bash” Haunted House is a fundraising event for the Fillmore Central Music Department. In 2011, Fillmore Central band director, Lane Powell and Monster Bash chairman, Jay Masters discussed the idea of a large scale fundraiser for the department. The first Monster Bash was held in 2012 and was an enormous success. There were over 100 people who donated their time and talents to construct the haunted house, make props and man the event on the evenings it was open. Business owners, private individuals and other non-profit organizations joined together to help the students raise over $9,000. The Monster Bash Haunted House is the largest fundraiser for the music department and has grown in size, participation and excitement every year.

All rooms and hallways have a specific theme. Some have live actors, some do not. The Monster Bash Haunted House is MUCH more than dark areas with people with a mask jumping out at you. The rooms have detailed décor, with black light paint ($50/quart), outdoor scenes, fog and many scares for young and old alike. The event this year is themed, “Monster Bash CarnEVIL of Fear.”

2014 marks the third year for the event and it promises to be the biggest and best haunted house so far. The event draws people from Rochester, Byron, and Winona, Minn., Waukon, Iowa, and LaCrosse, Wisc., along with many other communities, many coming every year. Several guests have called it the best haunted house they have ever seen. All guests are surprised at the size and attention to detail that goes into the structure. Hundreds of hours go into the planning, organizing, building and painting of props and the structure itself. This year there will be 20 people working the haunted house each night. Some will sell tickets, concessions and Monster Bash tee shirts, but most will be inside the haunted house.

The Monster Bash kicks off with a “less scary” night on Friday, October 17. The less scary night is for young children or adults who want to experience the fun without the fright. We will open at 4:30 p.m. that day and stay open until 9:30 p.m. The Monster Bash will then be open from 7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday through October 31.

For more information contact Lane Powell at (563) 203-0219 or Jay Masters at (507) 273-3143.
