Warner Robins Police usually want to make the community feel safe, but for part of this week, they are trying to scare you.

Their 7th annual Fear Fest Haunted House opened Monday night, with tricks that play on people's greatest fears.

Water pooling on the tarps wasn't part of the plan, but Captain John Clay says bad weather won't stop the start of local law enforcement's haunted tradition.

Clay said, "Lot of it is stuff we used in the past. Lot of it we get from different stores."

Clay says the Fear Fest incorporates roaches, clowns and ghoulish goblins.

Some dummies jump out to startle passersby, but most of the frights come from real actors. Clay said most of those actors are from Robins Air Force Base or other civilians. There are actually only a few police officers playing parts in the Haunted House.

The design team began working on this year's Fear Fest in mid-September.

More 2,000 people screamed their way through the tunnels last year, raising $10,000.

Proceeds paid to help law enforcement injured in the line of duty and six other local charities.

Clay says they added rooms for the seventh year, plus a grand finale. He said, "If I told you, that would be letting out the secret."

Tickets for Fear Fest cost $5.

Doors open Monday night at 7-30 p.m. and it's open until 11:30 p.m. every night until Saturday, October 30th.

It's located off Highway 247 on Stalnaker Avenue, at the Warner Robins Police Department Training Center.

And for Trick-or-Treaters in Houston County, here's a change.

The Houston County Board of Commissioners said in a news release Monday, that Halloween will be observed Saturday, October 30th.

That's also the date for the City of Warner Robins, Centerville and Perry.
