Westfield’s “Nightmare on Pearl Street” Haunted Mill will open on September 18th. The spooky experience for the whole family (recommended ages 10+) will run on Friday and Saturday nights for three consecutive weekends, September 18th and 19th, 25th and 26th, and October 2nd and 3rd, at 48 Pearl Street in the village.
This will be the 3rd presentation of the Haunted Mill, which is sponsored by Coors Light, and typically held every other year. The exhibits are intended to play on the imaginations of the participants by reflecting their daily lives.
Sally Catalano, one of the coordinators, notes that the group of community members who have worked on the project have enjoyed putting the event together over the years. “We have just as much fun as the participants.” she says. “Our presentation has been compared favorably to other, much larger Haunted Houses in bigger communities.” Organizers are certain that everyone who attends will be impressed.
Admission to the Haunted Mill is $3 per person. All proceeds will be donated to Chautauqua Hospice & Palliative Care. Catalano says that the group chose Hospice as the recipient because they feel that most everyone has been positively impacted by the services of Hospice in one way or another and they would like support the organization.
