Haunted Mill returns to Iola
Scary event raises funds for I-S juniors
Plans are underway for the third annual Haunted Mill on Main Street, Iola.
This fundraiser for the Iola-Scandinavia High School’s junior class takes place in Iola’s historic mill owned by Tom Fucik.
The dates are Oct. 21-22 and 28-30, with a special lights-on tour on Sunday, Oct. 30. This day the mill will be lit and non-scary. All tickets this day are a special rate of $3.
The scariest part of Sunday is just looking at spooky decorations. It is designed for children and anyone that would like to come and see the costumes and how the mill is decorated without the fear factor.
Children can trick-or-treat through the mill sections on the Sept. 30, so they should bring goodie bags or buckets.
The fright will also be toned down slightly from 6-7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28. Caution: This does not mean “non-scary,” nor will the lights be on; it will still probably be too much for young children.
All other times are full-fright tours at a cost of $7 for ages 13 and over, and $5 for ages 12 and under.
Members of the junior class will collect items for the food pantry at this event. People donating non-perishable items will receive $1 off the price of admission.
