Scare at the Fair

116 Route 40, West Alexander, PA 15376


An extension to the West Alexander Fair, the Halloween “Scare at the Fair” also takes place at the Fairgrounds and features an 8,500 square foot, walk-through haunted house. Already in it’s 5th year in 2017, the “Scare” has become a local favorite with such scares as “Zombie Madness”, “The Forest”, “Clowns-Clowns-Clowns” and the haunted maze. To mark their 5th year anniversary, they have expanded!

Be on the lookout for the haunted version of the fair queen as well… In 2016 they introduced “The Escape Room”, in which you have 5 minutes to solve puzzles to escape, all with various distractions. Due to popular demand, they have added a second room!  If you escape in time, you will be rewarded with admission with no wait, on any night!

October 6-7, 13-14, 20-21 and 27-28, 7:00pm – 11:00pm

This is a fundraising event sponsored by the West Alexander Fire Department.

Route 711, Ligonier, PA

Chad’s Corn Maze has been creating a new design in the cornfield of Green Mead Farm near Ligonier, PA since 2009. Last year’s design was “Long Black Train”; previous years included”Kick the Dust Up”, “Chainsaw”, “Round Here” and “Fly Over States”, each designed by computer and GPS technology. The 2017 theme has been chosen: “Dirty Laundry”, apparently inspired by the Carrie Underwood song of the same name. The maze looks a fun and confusing as ever… The maze is not haunted, so it is appropriate for kids of all ages as well as adults. Fridays through Sundays in October.– Read More…
