The Terror on Washington Street is in the midst of preparations for its' return this Halloween.
The Clinton Haunted House will be returning after a year's hiatus in October. Marian Brisard, Executive Director of the Clinton Area Chamber of Commerce, explains last year's Haunted House was closed due to not having a sprinkler system but they have installed a new system and are now are waiting on the water connection to be completed through the city of Clinton.
The new system quickly was installed relatively quickly, however, a large workload remains for the Chamber volunteers. Brisard explains the ceiling tiles all had to be taken out of the building and pitched because regulations call for the ceiling to be out in the open.
The return of the Haunted House all depended on money factors this year. Brisard explains they decided against building a new building due to expenses. The Chamber held several fundraisers over the past year in order to recoup the funds and Brisard is grateful for the local businesses that stepped up to support the Terror on Washington Street.
Brisard notes once the water is put in, the decorating will take place and be ready to go.
Terror on Washington Street will return to Clinton October 10th and run through the entire month. The Haunted House's proceeds will help to pay for much of the work done in the past several months, as it is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Clinton Chamber of Commerce.
