20 Years of Fright is theme for this year’s Fright at the Fort anniversary event at Fort Knox Historic Site in Prospect Maine featuring the most memorable monsters, aliens, zombies and other scares from the past 20 years. Guests will have a terrifyingly good time on a 20 minute tour through Fort Knox’s dark passageways and rooms where creepy creatures lurk in the shadows waiting to scare them silly. The annual event is also the Friend of Fort Knox’s biggest fundraiser needed to complete repairs and preservation projects.
