Deer District transforms into "Fear District" for Halloween season

NOW: Deer District transforms into “Fear District“ for Halloween season

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Deer District is transforming into the “Fear District” to kick off the Halloween season

Crews are putting the finishing touches on three haunted houses, a corn maze and more attractions. 

“Fear District” kicks off Thursday night at 6 p.m. and will run until November 3rd.

It will be open Thursday and Friday nights and afternoons and nights on the weekends.

Aside from the haunted houses and corn maze, there will be scary movies playing, Halloween-themed games, food and beverages.

Officials say there is something for everyone here who want to get into the Halloween spirit.

“Halloween isn’t really just a day," said Michael Belot, Senior Vice-President of Bucks Ventures and Development. "It’s certainly become an entire season and we’re doing lots of family programming. Anytime after six it’s more for adults, but anytime prior to six specifically Saturday and Sunday we’re doing kids programming. So, face painting. We are going to have trick or treating for kids and then all of these attractions really become a little bit more fun and playful for the kids as opposed to try and scare them.”

It’s free to come check it out, but if you want to go through the haunted houses and corn maze it’s $20 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under and people 65 or older.


Thursdays: 6 p.m.-10 p.m.

Fridays: 6 p.m.-11 pm.

Saturdays: 11 a.m.-11 p.m.

Sundays: 2 p.m.-8 p.m.
