NOW: Learn how a good scare can also benefit a good cause

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- As the temperatures are taking a dip this week, we are all receiving a reminder that the Halloween season is just around the corner. For those looking for a way to combine some community service with their Halloween fright, there's an event that might be just for you.

The Walk of Terror takes place each year in the village of East Troy and will start providing the scares, as well as funding for the East Troy Police Department on Sept. 30.

We were joined by Jeff McKone, founder of the Walk of Terror, co-owner Nellie McKone, co-owner Nellie Woods as well as East Troy Police Chief Jeremy Swendrowski on Thursday, Sept. 22 to learn more about how a spooky weekend can actually benefit the community.

The event is located at 3072 Graydon Avenue in East Troy at the East Troy beer tent on the Lions Club ground. It will be open every Friday and Saturday from Sept. 30 through Oct. 29. The box office will be open from 6:30 - 10:30 p.m. while the vault will be open from 7:00 - 11:00 p.m.

More information can be found by visiting the Walk of Terror online.
