What's Up, Eastern State?

What’s Up, Eastern State?

The school year is here and I am betting most of you are already sick of school! But guess what? There are some fun things coming up at Eastern State! The Gargoyles of Eastern State Penitentiary are up! What does this mean?! It means that Halloween is almost here. What does THAT mean? It means the annual Terror Behind The Walls is back! I am definitely excited for that.

Weighing 300 pounds each, these gargoyles are named Frank and Carson. Apparently, these guys stopped traffic while they were being put up! Putting up the gargoyles signals the start of Halloween. I’m already getting chills thinking about it! Halloween is no doubt my favorite holiday. I love horror movies, haunted houses, and the thrill of it all.

There are some new things being added to the Haunted House this year, so stay tuned for that! You can order tickets here and save some money. It’s way cheaper online than it is at the doors. (You can thank me later!) This year, the haunted house will open Friday, September 19 and ends on Saturday, November 8. So save these dates if you don’t want to miss it! I missed last year’s terror behind the walls, but I am planning on going this year.

Aside from the exciting Halloween event, Pets and Prison is still going on and it will take place September 27th and 28th. This will be the last 2 days for you and your family to learn new stories about animals. This event will be held the whole entire day!

Alright guys, that’s basically some of the things coming up at Eastern State. I highly recommend for you all to try and go because school is wearing me out and I know that it’s wearing out Seniors and Juniors out there too! These events will be fun and exciting and I promise you that it’ll be unforgettable.
