There's one Halloween thrill opening up this weekend right here in Acadiana. Friday night the Lafayette Science Museum opens their doors to the “Museum of Fear”. They say it's bigger, better, and scarier than years past.
The annual Museum of Fear returns to downtown Lafayette from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays in October, held on the spooky third floor of the Lafayette Science Museum at the corner of Congress and Jefferson streets.
Admission is $8 at the door, where you leave all rational thought behind. The fun concludes with the inaugural ZombieWalk beginning at 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012, at corner of Lee and Jefferson streets on the lawn of the old City Hall, next to the statue of Gen. Mouton (who may participate).
The zombie parade will march down Jefferson Street in downtown Lafayette, ending at Parc Sans Souci for an after-party and costume contest. The lucky winners of the costume contest earn the right to haunt visitors from within the Museum of Fear's cemetery. Participation in ZombieWalk and walking among the living dead is free.
Both events are geared for the whole family. As organizers put it, “A family that scares together shares together!”

Both events are fundraisers for the downtown museum.
