But it's also time to cram in every last haunted house you can in for this year. Which is why you are going to want to make sure to get in one that is right here in St. Cloud and the best part is, it's for a good cause.

Had the pleasure of getting in a few of the guys from St. Cloud State University's Fraternity TKE, to talk about their upcoming Haunted House they are holding at the TKE house and for the first time ever, it's open to the public.

Entry is relatively cheap when you compare it to many other things you could be doing AND the proceeds are actually going to be helping out St. Jude's Children's Hospital, soooo it's for a GREAT cause.

The theme this year will be "Old School", which turns out are just the scary movies that came out during my time, so I think I just got told I'm "old" in the nicest way possible. Expect themes like "Scream", "Scare", "Freddy Krueger"...you know old school, haha!

But the new addition that TKE is really excited to bring to their Haunted House, beside being open to the public, is brand new LED lights. Look for them to be different with each floor of the Haunted House, which is three levels by the way.

Help a great cause and get your scare on, while TKE gets to get their care on Tuesday and Thursday.
