“Nightmare On Fairgrounds Road” Not Laughing at Recent Clown Craziness

Posted by wlpo on October 13, 2016

You know it’s unusual when a place set up to scare you has to break character to give you reassurance.

That’s what’s happening though at the “Nightmare on Fairgrounds Road” in Princeton. The annual haunted attraction at the Bureau County Fairgrounds posted a message on social media earlier this month to address the clown madness that has been flaring up around the country.

The Facebook post claims that “Copycat mentality has hijacked the clown character and turned it into a real-world menace.” While they went on to say they will still continue to feature clowns as part of the show, they’re asking you to refrain from wearing clown makeup if you go to the show.

If you want to check the show out for yourself it runs from 7:00 to 9:30 on Fridays and Saturdays in October, and admission is $10.
