The Rig haunted house aims to be annual event

Nov 06, 2012

Camden — The CREW, a Camden Hills Regional High School based mentoring program, hosted a haunted house on Halloween night at the Rig, the local high school hang out in downtown Camden.

Trick-or-treaters were lured to the haunt by the heckling of a wicked witch and the sauntering sounds of a saxophone played live. Inside the spooky house the atmosphere was rife with phantoms, monsters, and severed heads eliciting screams that could be heard from the street. The goal of the haunted house was to bring awareness to the Rig location by engaging in the spirit of a popular community event. It was the first year for the haunted house and it was a great success bringing many to the front door of the Rig. The CREW hopes to continue the new tradition annually.
