The Wesleyville Hose Company has a yearly fund raiser called THE HALLS of FEAR.
it runs the last three weekends in OCT. and this year is open on the 31st. We have been running it for the last 7 years. We tookit over from the Wesleyville Nieghborhood watch group. and all the Profit goes to the department for Equipment. Anyone coming to the Erie PA area during that time make shure you check it out. the website is www.wesleyvillehose.com then click on the Halls of fear link.
We are always looking for new Ideas so please post anything you might think would help. thanks
During the season we do a haunted house within our dept. during this time we have a local farmer donate a bunch of pumpkins .. We set up stations.. Face painting,pumkin carving,fire safety,coloring scary pic for a contest to be held that day... We have the training center bring down their smoke trailor and we run kid s thru it .. then a parade to be held after the evening ended with prizes.. we charge each kid $5 for the event and they can stay all day... They have a blast ,, The scary house is full of jello brains,and member are dressed up, things droping from the ceiling.. we make alot of money for the day.. At the end kids are tired and have had a safe day.... Donated candy with apple cider and donuts.. Not for sure what u are looking for ..
