The sixth annual Dark Carnival will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 26 from 7 to 11 p.m. on the heritage side of Lindenwood’s St. Charles campus.

The event that is sponsored by SSM Health is free and open for the public. Cobbs Hall haunted house, more than 50 booths, carnival games, free food, live music by Members Only and radio personalities from Emmis Radio’s The Point and KSHE hosting will serve as an entertainment of the evening.

Event organizer Bryan Stone said he predicts that over 6,000 people will attend the event, which is 3,500 people more what he expected last year.

“This is an amazing opportunity for local businesses and organizations to come onto campus and showcase the goods and services they offer within our local community,” Stone said. “I am so excited to present an event that is available to our local community and allows us and local businesses to give back. What truly separates this event from all other events in the area is the Dark Carnival event, attractions, and booths are completely free.”

Booth spots for local businesses are still open and the deadlines to reserve a spot is Friday, Oct. 14.
