Livestock Judging Team hosts “Fear Farm.”

Fort Scott, Kansas – The Fort Scott Community College will be hosting a spooky “Fear Farm” this Halloween to raise money for Livestock Judging Team activities. “Fear Farm” will run from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on October 24, 25 and 31.

Livestock Judging Coach Ryan Page said that the spook level is rated for pre-teens and older.

Page added, “We want people to come out and have a great time. What we’re doing might be too intense for young children, but I’m sure every parent’s mileage varies.”

This is the third year that the team has hosted a spooky fundraiser. It is quickly becoming an event for the community to look forward to every year.

The trail will start at the FSCC Ag Barn at Highway 54 West in Fort Scott. Attendees should travel west on highway 54 and turn at the gas station on the left. There will be a white barn on a hill with two silos.
