It's a tri-state tradition. You load up the car, the SUV, the van, whatever it is you load up and you head to downtown Evansville with the goal of being terrified. And you always succeed.

This year, the Old Courthouse Catacombs and the House of Lecter will be checking visitors into the "Bates Motel". It's this year's theme. Oh, and don't worry. There are plenty of vacancies and all the rooms have...showers!

The Old Courthouse Catacombs and the House of Lecter opens this Friday night and will keep a two-day weekend schedule until it expands to Thursday nights on October 10th. Click here for the full schedule and be sure to text the word SCARY to 89000 for a BOGO combo ticket!

And make sure you tune in to the Afternoon Drive Home. Through Halloween, I'll have your chance to win tickets to the Old Courthouse Catacombs and the House of Lecter. Just listen for those shrieking Psycho violins and be caller 13 when you hear them.

And I'll "shower" you with tickets. Bwahahahaha...
