All Stand – The Hanging Judge Is Coming to the Courthouse!

You are on trial and justice WILL be served! Are you afraid of the harsh outcome that may await you at the Historic Salem Courthouse this October during Fear This? You should be. Transgressions, oversights, mistakes and lapses of judgement – we have them all, but do we ever really answer for them….? REALLY answer for them? This year, sentences will be handed down and punishments meted out. Come to Fear This and witness the atonement of others if you dare! Fridays and Saturday from 7 to 9:30 pm: October 16 & 17, 23 & 24 and 30 & 31.

Rik Sassa and his zany production crew have promised a Halloween event that will scare and entertain all thrill-seekers. Fear This is in its sixth year, and Rik has a large assortment of twists and turns up his sleeve. Due to the scary nature of the event, it is not recommended for very young children or adults with weak hearts. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children 13 and under, $25 for families (moms, dads or caretakers and children), and $5 for active servicemen, firefighters and EMS works with ID cards. Anyone interested in helping to stage the event should contact the Courthouse at 518-854-7053. Rik advises everyone to come see the show this year, because “if you don’t, the Fear This hanging judge, is coming to get you!”

Get Ready ~ Fear This Is Coming!!!

Friday and Saturday evenings in October:

October 16 & 17; 24 & 25; 30 & 31

From 7 to 9:30 pm

Be there if you dare!

Interested in having fun and helping this year! Please call Donna at 518-854-7053.
