Relocation of Ankeny Haunted Barn

Ankeny Haunted Barn is a family owned and operated business for over 10 years and my dad Chris Bales is the founder of Ankeny Haunted Barn and he passed away a couple of years ago and my sister brother and mom want his legacy to live on. City of Ankeny wouldn’t issue our permit to open this season and it’s wrong. We wanted 1 final year in our home of 23 years but they wouldn’t give us the permit so we will have Haunted Barn in a new location next year and the years to follow but not in Ankeny. Please help us raise funds to relocate and bring back the #1 rated Haunted House in the desmoines metro area. For the 1st 10 people who donate they will get a free Ankeny Haunted Barn sweatshirt.
