Diamond Lake Resort in Owensboro, Ky., is getting ready for a spooktacular October with the opening of Boo Fest this weekend, according to The Owensboro Times.

The event, which is typically scheduled for both Friday and Saturday each weekend in October, will mainly be on Saturdays this year. Officials said the reason for the change stems from logistical problems encountered by Robby Derrington, the person behind the haunted house.

Diamond Lake owners Brian and Janice Smith confirmed the haunted house will not be a part of Boo Fest this year, but said they hope Derrington will be back next year.

“We are trying to get the word out that we won’t have [the haunted house] on Friday nights,” Janice said. “But we hope he will return next year and it will be bigger and better.”

The campground and resort is booked each weekend, but Janice said BooFest is open to the public as well.

“People finally learned to book quicker,” Janice said, adding they do have a waiting list for those that are hoping to stay on one of the weekends.

Janice said they are expecting large crowds again. She said campers supply the candy for the trick-or-treat through the campground.
