The Newark Bears will turn their ballpark into a “Stadium of Screams” tonight, bringing back the haunted house attraction for its second year.

For two weekends, Oct. 18-21 and 25-28, as well as Halloween itself, Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium will become a “bone-chilling haunted attraction” featuring three separate indoor haunts. The attraction will be open from 8 p.m. to midnight each night.

Admission into the stadium, where there will be live entertainment, costume contests and carnival games, is free. Admission into the three haunted attractions is $20. A hay ride that takes place on the field costs $5.

On Saturday, Oct. 27, the Bears will hold a costume contest for dogs—click here for details.

Volunteers from Hackensack High School, Technology High School in Newark and Newark Innovation Academy, as well as students from Berkeley College, Bloomfield College, Christ the King Prep High School, New Jersey City University, Nyack College, Rutgers University – Newark and Seton Hall University, who work with the organization as interns, will support the Halloween event.
