5:19 PM - See Festival Park at night! (posted by Webmaster)
This was opening weekend for the all-new Sleepy Hollow Sports Park "Haunted Village of Screams" - a Halloween event held at the Des Moines Renaissance Faire "Festival Park" location. A few of the food merchants are open for business, and each is providing some sort of free activity, game or ride for those who have paid admission. In addition to food and games are three haunted houses, including the all-new Castle of Blood inside of Marick Castle. This is the first time folks can visit Festival Park at night, and actually go inside the castle (though it's not quite the family friendly event the renaissance festival is -- the torture chambers and other haunted houses are not for kids unless they are VERY brave).
