The fun starts Thursday (Sept. 7) with the opening of Blachford Field Of Nightmares – scare you to be there!

It is open 9 p.m. to midnight, but later if there is a lineup at midnight.

Cost is $20 per person. Please bring cash.

Blachford Field Of Nightmares is located about a half kilometre east, on the left side, from the intersection of Hwy. 668 and Resources Road. Look for the Field Of Nightmares sign.

If you are in the city head south on 98th Street until you hit the lights at Hwy. 668 and turn east. If you are on the west side of the city head south on Hwy. 40 and turn east at the lights at the Hwy. 668 intersection.

Build up some courage before, or settle the nerves after, by visiting the Wild Horse Casino & Lounge at the Park. Wild Horse is open until 1 a.m. every day.
