Escape From Fright Nights

Thanks to all our sponsors, participants and volunteers who helped make Escape from Fright Nights frighteningly fun.
Stay tuned for 2014 details.

 The Run that is Frighteningly Fun

Recommended for ages 9-99

On Friday, October 25 at 6:00 PM grab your best friend, your sister and your grandpa and bring them to Escape from Fright Nights, Central New York's scariest costume fun run.

Escape from Fright Nights starts outside the entrance of the legendary Fright Nights at the NYS Fair. The 2.5 mile course continues around the fair grounds where zombie creatures and other characters will work their spooky best to scare the run right out of you and chase you through the grand finish through Fright Nights at the Fair. Don't worry about chip times... worry about the zombies and other creatures.

Come dressed in your best spooky (or not so spooky) costume!

 * All zombies and characters are trained professionals who understand how to incite fear from a distance. You will not be pushed, grabbed or physically interact with the zombies.
