Evansville Home Transforms Into Epic Haunted House in Time for Halloween
This home haunt is epic AND it goes to support a really good cause.
Halloween For a Cause
Some people just know how to Halloween, and those are my kinda people! One of my favorite Halloween stops every year is the Nightmare on Eastbrooke. It's a home haunt set up on Evansville's northeast side, and they go all out for Halloween. They transform their driveway, yard, and garage into a full-scale haunted house. The best part? It's all to help out Bread of Life Ministries.
Evansville's Best Kept Halloween Secret
It's truly a labor of love that keeps the Nightmare on Eastbrooke going. Every year they put on a fantastic haunted house, and all they ask is that you bring two canned food items with you to donate to Bread of Life Ministries.
I talked with Sean Wallace who helps volunteer with the haunted house each year, and he said they had over 600 people come through one weekend alone in 2021 so this may just be Evansville's best-kept Halloween secret! This year is extra special because this year the theme is Nightmare on Eastbrooke: Final Chapter. What do they mean by the "final chapter?" They may just have something even bigger in store for next year!
The Last Ride Coffin Simulator
This year something new the Nightmare on Eastbrooke haunt has is a Last Ride Coffin Simulator. For a $5 donation, you can hop in and head to your final resting place. Do you think you can survive?
