Terror on the Square has started Phase 1 of reopening their downtown location in Petersburg, Illinois. Since 1993, Terror on the Square, a unique haunted attraction, has entertained tens of thousands of people across Illinois, and beyond, with their ghost-like illusions and special effects throughout the month of October. 


 Due to a lack of a sprinkler system and other new Life Safety Code requirements, this attraction was forced to close the doors of it's historical building in 2013. In the fall of 2015, a new, larger water main was installed to support a fire sprinkler system. By installing the new water main into the building while the downtown streets and sidewalks were already under construction, the bill was considerably less than first assessed. However, the installation bill still totals $8,200 due to the size of the line and amount of work to install it. 


 Terror on the Square hopes for support from the Petersburg community, along with all its businesses and many fans to help move ahead to Phase 2 and reopen the doors of our historic downtown location, thus bringing thousands of people back to Petersburg and it's businesses. I want to thank everyone ahead of time for their support of Terror on the Square, my personal lifelong dream based on my passion of Halloween and magic.

The goal for the gofundme.com/terroronthesquare has been reached for stage 1 of Terror on the Square returning home downtown. The name for the second movie night drawing has been drawn.....it is Jim Nelson! Thanks to Jim and all the many others that has donated/shared/supported us in this first step. Remember this was to get the water main into the building to supply the sprinklers. The next step is finding out from the state officails and the new State Fire Marshal what exactly is needed to meet code besides sprinklers. Lets hope and pray that we can move past this next stage and proceed forward. The gofundme account is still open, along with the National Bank of Petersburg water main account for many who are asking. Thanks again from myself and all of the Terror on the Square Crew!

Due to many people asking if they can still donate and be in on the second movie night drawing, we will run this campaign through the weekend and the beginning of next week. The drawing will be towards the end of the week to make sure everyone gets included that wants in. Again thanks to all that donated and all the people that has shared posts to get word out about gofundme.com/terroronthesquare.

After much support and even getting a $1000 donation from Gofundme themselves, we are at $7340! Only $860 to go to meet our goal of $8200 to pay for the sprinkler water main. We are doing ANOTHER movie night giveaway! The name of anyone donating $10 or more will be entered into a drawing for a movie of choice (on DVD) in the beautiful Salem on Seventh Theatre for 20 friends, popcorn and soda included. This would be a cool prize and fun night for the person who wins it! So far in this second half of the campaign there are only 25 people in the drawing. With only $860 to go, the odds could be very good for anyone who wants to participate. Myself, and everyone at Terror on the Square, want to thank everyone for their support to help bring this attraction back to the square in Petersburg.
