I will never understand the joy that some people get out of walking down a dark hallway and having a creepy clown with a chainsaw jump out and scare the crap out of them. Haunted houses aren't my thing, but I know a lot of you are into them, so I've compiled this list of places here in our backyard that are worth the drive.

1) Fright at the Farm - 15 minutes north of Rochester.  Fright at the Farm has over 10,000 square feet of indoor haunts plus attractions like The Garden of Evil, Cannibal Bus, and the Haunted Hemp Maze. Dunken & Samm have tickets to give away each morning at 8:00 AM with the Burning Question on 106.9 KROC.

2) Monster Bash Haunted House - Harmony MN.  Rated #1 best overall attraction by minnesotahauntedhouses.com. The monster bash features an elaborate haunted house and is a fundraiser for the Fillmore Central Music Department.

3) Nightmare on First Street - Fountain MN.  Each year "Nightmare" has different themes. Previous themes have included A Night at the Carnival, Edgar Allen Poe, and Alfred Hitchcock. This year's will be The Wild and Haunted West.

Keep listening to 106.9 KROC for all sorts of tricks and to win cash weekdays at 7:30a and 3:30p to buy all sorts of treats!
