An annual haunted house will not happen for the second year in a row.

The Kenduskeag Haunted House will not be happening this year. Organizers took to Facebook earlier in August to announce the annual haunt has been scrapped, again. Organizers say, "We are fearful that we would spend hours building and have a mandate come down from the state that we would not be able to follow and all of that work would have been for nothing. We are hoping this will all be behind us next year and we can finally open again!" 

Other spooky attractions in the Bangor area still plan to open this season. Organizers of Maineiac Manor inside the Bangor Mall announced on Facebook back in March, "Your worst nightmare returning October 2021." The haunt took over a vacant store inside the mall last year, and transformed it into 4,000 square-feet of terror. The success of the attraction extended beyond Halloween season, with a Krampus Christmas themed haunted house back in December.

Additionally, Five nights of Fright will return this year. Organizers for Fright At The Fort are already working on bringing the creepy event back, bigger than ever before. Last year the annual Halloween attraction was canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions. It was first time the annual event had been canceled since it began 20 years ago.
