Fright Nights is “definitely not recommended for ages 12 and under, seniors 65+, people with sensitivity to strobe lighting, people with high blood pressure, heart conditions, pregnant women or scaredy-cats,” event organizers warn.

“Absolutely no guest costumes or guest costume face makeup allowed,” they add.
