Haunted Overload has been voted one of the top haunts in the country!  The haunt is an experience unlike any other as customers walk through an outdoor haunt with actors, 34-foot monsters and scary structures that rival movie quality sets and special effects. Haunted Overload takes place at DeMeritt Hill Farm on October 13-15, 19-22 and 26-31.  There are day haunts which are child-friendly and family focused so everyone can enjoy the haunt, as well as Fright-nights which are extra scary!  Howl for the Animals takes place during the day when friendly monsters comes out to play in the safety of the daylight.  Please note that dogs are only allowed at this one event, Howl for the Animals.  For more information on both day and night time frights, please visit Haunted Overload.  To learn more about Howl for the Animals, and how the proceeds from Haunted Overload benefit the important work of CVHS, please visit the Cocheco Valley Humane Society.

Lend a Helping Hand: Haunted Overload is committed to supporting Cocheco Valley Humane Society by donating a portion of their proceeds to help the animals. In return for their generosity, CVHS recruits volunteers to help us with various tasks during the day and night haunts.  CVHS needs volunteers to help with parking, greeting volunteers, feeding the actors, handing out candy and other tasks during Haunted Overload day and night haunts as well as the Howl for the Animals Fundraiser on Saturday, October 14th.
