Nightmare arises again in Fountain


Mon, Oct 20th, 2014
Posted in Fountain Features

The time is nearly ripe for the re-emergence of Fountain’s Nightmare on First Street: Field of Screams and Haunted Barn. For the fourth year, this spooky non-profit fund-raiser is set to chill and thrill patrons.

Hundreds of hours every year go into the metamorphosis of this scary delight. Attendees can expect creepy scenes, carved pumpkins, a labyrinth, screams and moans, surprises and scares, live actors, and maybe even an apparition of DEATH.

Creating and hosting this ten night event are Paul and Regan Little of Fountain, with their teens, Logan and Demery. Numerous others help with the presentation of the event.

The theme this year is Edgar Allan Poe. Many of Poe’s best stories will be referenced throughout the event. But, even folks who aren’t familiar with Poe’s work will enjoy all of Nightmare.

Nightmare will be running in all its gory glory October 16 to 18, October 23 to 25, and October 30 to November 1; 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursdays, and 7 to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. A special “lower scare” night will be Sunday, October 26, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., with brighter lights and actors leading tours.

Nightmare on First Street: Field of Screams and Haunted Barn lurks behind 609 First Street in Fountain, Minnesota. More information can be found at NightmareOnFirstStreet.weebly.com.
