Fright at the Fort will return this October. The announcement was made this week that the annual spooky attraction at Fort Knox is returning this year.

Last year the annual Halloween attraction was canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. It was second year in a row the annual event had been canceled. 2020 was the first time the event was canceled since it began more than 20 years ago.
The three weekend event is Fort Knox's biggest annual fundraiser. Roughly 10,000 visitors visit the spooky attraction each year. The 2018 Stephen King theme brought in a record setting 15,050 visitors over the five Fright nights.
Fort Knox and the Penobscot Narrows Bridge Observatory will open for the season May 1.
