Halloween may officially be on Oct. 31, but the Oxford Police Department is getting the jump on the holiday and bringing spooky fun to Oxford this weekend.

Tonight, OPD will open the doors to their 11th annual haunted house that will be open each night through Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m.

Police officers and OPD staff have worked for several days to turn the OPD Training Building into a scary Halloween delight.

After enjoying the scream-inducing scenes inside the haunted building, a concession stand outside will be serving funnel cakes, corn dogs and other refreshments.

OPD’s Communication Supervisor Bridgette Frierson said the haunted house is most appropriate for older children.

“Any age willing to take the challenge is welcome but we recommend them to be at least 8 years old,” she said.

The cost is $5 a person and funds raised will to OPD’s summer program, Camp COPS and the Maranda Anderson Fund. Anderson, the wife of Lafayette County Fire Coordinator Wes Anderson, died in September after a long battle with cancer.

In efforts to continue building relationships with Oxford residents, OPD hosts the annual Haunted House and other events throughout the year to foster community engagement geared toward the inclusion of all community members.

“We like having an event that the community can come out and enjoy,” Frierson said.
