The entire Sheep Barn, behind the Van Zee building, at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds has been converted into a pirate-themed maze containing nine rooms of Halloween horror filled with zombies, monsters and long dark hallways. Each room will take you closer and deeper into the pirates’ nightmare and will be sure to frighten even the bravest. A large pirate ship with cannons has been constructed, complete with large swamps and skulls, to greet you at the entrance.

“Expect to be spooked, it’s going to be three big nights,” said coordinator Marilyn Jones.

More than 100 volunteers have worked tirelessly for the past six weeks to create the surprises and thrills that await each person as they walk through. A guide leads each group through with a map in search for the pirates’ treasure.

The fright fest, sponsored by Kitsap County Parks and Recreation, gets started on Friday, Oct. 29 from 7-10 p.m.
