Monster Bash raises money for FCHS Music Department


HARMONY, Minn. (KTTC)--The first night of the second "Monster Bash" in Harmony opened on Friday.  The Haunted House serves as a fundraiser to help more than 90-members of Fillmore Central High School Music Department fund a trip to perform at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

 "We're a lot bigger this year, we had such rave reviews last year that last year we took up about 65-percent of the gym, this year we're about 95-percent full," said Jay Masters, Chairman of the Monster Bash.  "We added rooms, we added hallways and if people came last year, there's nothing duplicated, it's all brand new this year."

More than 100 volunteers spend months preparing for the spooky event.

"It's just scary enough to put you on edge, but not too scary that you want to run through it," said Karl Iverson of Lenora.  "It was just perfect for a young kid and a guy like me who gets scared going through haunted houses anyway."

The Monster Bash is being held at the Harmony Community Center on October 19, 20, 24, 25, 26, 27, 30, 31 starting at 7.  The first half-hour of each show will be dedicated to "less scary" walk throughs, suitable for children.
