The Monster Bash Haunted House in Harmony is routinely ranked as one of the top haunted houses in the state, and it has announced that it will postpone the Haunted House at Fillmore Central High School for 2020 and look forward to 2021.

The Monster Bash Haunted House noted on their website that 2020 has been scary enough:

"Due to a plague infesting the world the Monster Bash Inc board has made the difficult decision to not hold the haunt this year. Our guests', community, and student workers' safety is of the upmost importance to us. We hope to see everyone in 2021."

According to Minnesota Haunted Houses, the Monster Bash won the award for Minnesota's Attraction of the year in 2017 and 2018.

The Monster Bash Haunted House raises money each year for the arts at Fillmore Central School District, specifically band, choir, theater, and fine arts. Each year, the Monster Bash Haunted House has a unique theme to scare thrill-seekers as they march through the Haunted House.

Those that would still like to donate, can do so on the Monster Bash Haunted House donation page, which you can find here. 

The Monster Bash Haunted House is operated by a 501(c)3 whose mission is to support the arts in the local community.
