Haunted House Coming to Bedford This Weekend

The Bedford First Parish Church located at 75 Great Road is holding it's 4th annual Haunted House this Friday from 6-9pm and Saturday from 1 to 4pm and 6-9pm. I recently spoke with Gene Kalb, who is heading up the promotion of the Haunted House. According to Gene, the Haunted House is done for the community and as a fundraiser for the Church. This year which is supposed to be a little scarier than previous years, has a Monster theme with different rooms for different movies and tv shows such as a Twilight Zone Room and a Zombie Room. The Haunted House is open to everyone, although Gene  mentioned that the "scarier" stuff after 6pm is not recommended for younger children. Most of the scary people in the haunted house are the kids and adults from the church. It takes most people about 30 minutes to go through the Haunted House. Gene is expecting about 1,000 people this year, up from about 800 last year. In addition this is the first year that the Haunted House is open for 2 days.

Many local business have sponsored the event, mostly by buying tickets in advance and then giving them to their customers or employees at no cost.
