Nightmare on Fairgrounds Road returns tonight and continues every Friday and Saturday night through the end of the month, bringing thrills and chills to the Bureau County Fairgrounds in Princeton. Event organizer Dave Mead says escaping everyday life is one of the major purposes of the event. There are plenty of frights for the adults, but also fun for the kids. Enjoy snacks, hot cocoa or other food items at Mummie’s Eatery. This is the show’s 15th year, and it continues to grow. Hours have been expanded this year, with the event open from 7 to 10 pm.  Admission is 10 dollars, but a 15 dollar “speed pass” allows you to skip the line. WZOE will be broadcasting on-location from Nightmare on Fairgrounds Road tomorrow evening.  You can get more information online at
