Fort Casey State Park will once again host a haunted fort this October, but the staff needs the community’s help.

The haunting will happen Oct. 20-21 as part of the annual Haunting of Coupeville celebration, a month of community harvest/Halloween related events.

Program specialist Sharon Young-Hale said she needs volunteers of all kinds.

“We are needing actors, prop builders, makeup artists, line scarers, parking attendants and more,” she said.

Volunteers will be meeting 11 a.m. to noon every Saturday in September for new recruits and then work parties will be held 12-3 p.m. to prepare for the event.

Additional meetings will be held in October for further preparation and planning.

Participants must sign in at the park office.

The Haunted Fort started in 2015 and was met with greater than expected turnout. Thousands attended the first-time event.
