KENNEWICK, WA- Operators for Scaregrounds said first year in service was very successful.

It was the first year Freak Show, Terror Behind the Screen, and Project 13 combined to make one big scary event, called Scaregrounds.  Townsquare Media said more than $100,000 was invested to make this happen.  

They did however, run into some challenges with regulatory authorities in Kennewick, but they worked with the city to make the attraction happen.  Overall, the operators said this year was a success. 

"We're just very happy with what we've done. We're very happy that we got together with Project 13.  We look forward to a great haunting season in 2016.  We want people to stay tuned because we're going to be even better next year," said Al Holman, Live Events Manager for Townsquare Media.

Scaregrounds saw close to 8,000 people over the five weeks of operation.  They even tried something new this year called "kids day," which saw nearly 650 people.
