Color changes, cool winds and screams are just a few things fall brings every year. With Halloween right around the corner, you can guarantee that the Spring Glen School of Screams spirits are read to scare you.
With new and improved rooms, the old school house is set with new scares and additions you won’t want to miss. Coordinators Jon and Jenny Black are keeping the original characters like the white lady and gypsies, but adding a new twist of characters including cannibals, babies and freaks.
The volunteers from last year and a few new people have put in weeks of hard work to make sure this spook alley is as good as it can be. Rebecca Patterson, cosmetology student says, “I love this time of year because I get to come and volunteer doing something that I actually enjoy!” The cosmetology girls will do hair and make up again this year and some are even volunteering to hide in the house.
The school houses’ opening night is Oct. 5-6 and be open every Friday and Saturday night plus Halloween night from 8 to 11 p.m. in October. Like last year, the cost is $10 per person for all ages. The address is 1950 West 4100 North in Spring Glen and for additional information or questions, call (435) 472-HOWL.
The Blacks have gone to great lengths to make this spooky school as fun as can be, while being mindful of safety precautions and even being careful of age appropriate scaring for those little ones you might think of bringing. They are asking to everyone to support the school and the community in an attempt to make improvements to the old building and have some laughs and, of course, scares.
