Fright Night in Wallingford benefits good causes

WALLINGFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – When the sun goes down and darkness engulfs all you can see, it seems to be only human nature that our fears of the unknown begin to set in. And if you’re in Wallingford you have good reason to be afraid because around every corner is where your worst nightmares are lurking.

At least that is the case at an event called “Trail of Terror” on North Plains Highway where guests are taken into a labyrinth of rooms depicting different spooky scenes. But beware, what you see and experience is not for the faint of heart.

“They like getting scared we don’t know what it is,” said organizer Matt Polverari. “We chase them we run after them, we run em backwards, they fall down we keep chasing them, they love it.”

But what organizers say makes this haunted happening different there others you may have tried is no two days are ever the same.

The money raised at the Trail of Terror goes to support the local community, including the Wallingford Emergency Shelter, the Wallingford Fire Department, and the Meriden Soup Kitchen.
