Nightmare at Beaver Lake replaces stolen trailer with community help

Nightmare at Beaver Lake can continue the scares, thanks to community donations to buy a trailer.

Organizers’ previous trailer and several props disappeared from a Kent warehouse. Scare Productions, a nonprofit theater group and partner in the annual Halloween-themed event at Beaver Lake Park, discovered the 18-foot Wells Cargo-brand cargo trailer had been stolen June 19.

Organizers purchased a replacement trailer last week, using thousands of dollars in community donations.

Kelcey Hendricks, Scare Productions promotions director, said the group raised $1,700 by creating zombie makeup during the Red, White & Dead Zombie Walk in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood, plus $400 at a garage sale.

Organizers used the fundraiser dollars and community donations to meet a $3,000 goal.

Nightmare at Beaver Lake is the largest Halloween haunt in the Puget Sound region and, perhaps, in the West. The annual event runs from Oct. 19-31.

The annual event is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Sammamish and over the years has raised tens of thousands of dollars for area charities.
