The 21st annual Fright Night held on Friday October 22, 2010 was a big success. Over 550 people, including 320 kids attended the annual party. With a variety of activities including a very scary Haunted House, ghoulish games, tasty treats, and an extra bouncy bounce house everyone had something fun to do. Kevin Cherry a 4th grader at Beach Elementary School said “the games were really fun, but my favorite was the bounce house. I didn’t go in the haunted house because the clowns were too scary.” While Kevin was scared Devin Browder (A 5th grader at the Beach School) stated “I loved the haunted house. It was scary the first time, but I wasn’t scared the second time I went in it. It was the best Haunted house ever.”
This years Fright Night had many volunteers that helped make this the best one yet. Without the volunteers, there would be no one to scare the kids or run the games.
