The circus-themed “Cirque du So Evil” haunted house is back at Fright Forest in Lebanon



Lebanon, Indiana – Sunday marks the end of a Boone County Halloween tradition that began last weekend.

This year, Fright Forest made a comeback to the fairgrounds with a circus-themed attraction called “Cirque du So Evil,” which includes a hayride and haunted house for a distinctive trick-or-treat encounter.

Actress and volunteer Valarie Smith says the preparation for the event takes weeks, but it’s worthwhile.

“I love the fact that this group donates so much money to the Boone County 4H,” Smith said. “This has been so much fun. The community has been really nice to connect with it.”

For those who might be easily scared, the event on Sunday offers a “scareless” experience. For trick-or-treating, the route will be accessible for a walkthrough with lights. Additionally, a costume contest is planned.

For younger children, it’s a fantastic chance, said to board president Tracy Heine.

“It’s been great so far,” Heine said. “We’ve been here at the fairgrounds like five years … I think it’s probably our best opening weekend that we’ve had so far.”

The Peru Amateur Circus is scheduled to conduct two shows on Sunday in addition to providing a workshop with the performers.

“Scareless Sunday” is free for adults and $5 for children. It runs from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The standard Halloween experience is available from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. on October 20 and 21 for one more weekend. Adult admission is $15, while children aged three to twelve pay $8. You can buy tickets online or in person at the door.
