October 29 is Fright Night and everyone is welcome to participate!

How to get involved: If you belong to a non-profit organization or club, sign up to host a booth. This is a fun way to make some money for your organization and to help local families have some safe, indoors, Halloween fun. Call Mark’s Greenhouse and Floral at 701-662-5262 and leave a message and Eva Olson will get right back to you with information. She says this must be their tenth year hosting Fright Night and she hopes the community really comes out in support of this event. Each year there is something new to see and do at Fright Night. Families are encouraged to come together and all come in costume. Plus, don’t forget your old favorites, too, like having your picture taken with a Minion or a “real” live witch. Fright Night is Monday, Oct. 29 and it offers a bounce house and games and prizes from several non-profit organizations.

What does it cost? Fright Night is $3 per person for admission. The games are geared for children who are in preschool to 10 years old, but older children are welcome, too. What does your $3 get you? For the cost of admission, you get a Halloween Bag, candy and can have a piece of cake donated by Leevers Foods. Olson says she is so grateful for Leevers, “They’ve been with us since the very beginning,” providing a cake free of charge for the evening. If you’re hungry for a more substantial meal, before you have your cake, one booth will also be selling Tacos in a Bag - some people call them “Walking Tacos.” Another booth will be selling fresh popped popcorn and cotton candy spun right there, on the spot. There will be something for everyone! The money raised by each organization stays with that organization and the money raised at the door is donated to one or two local charities - like the Hope Center or the Lake Region Community Shelter, for example. Olson says, “Come in costume and enjoy a fun evening before going out Trick or Treating on Wednesday, that’s Halloween!”
