PROSPECT The Friends of Fort Knox are beginning to ramp up for their annual Halloween event, Fright at the Fort, and are seeking additional volunteers.

Volunteers are being sought to shuffle through the dark passageways of the fort as terrifying zombies during one of Maine's largest Halloween events. Volunteers unable to muster the appropriate ghoulish spirit may help out by serving as group tour guides, makeup artists or security helpers.

Fright at the Fort has attracted over 10,000 visitors in the past, and event organizers hope to top that number this year. Fright will be conducted on Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 19, 20, 26 and 27, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. (visitors should arrive by 8:30 p.m.).

The Friends of Fort Knox use revenue generated from Fright at the Fort in preservation projects for the State historic site.

This marks the 13th year of Fright, and it will be celebrated with a special fireworks display the second night of Saturday, Oct. 20 at 9:20 p.m. The fireworks will be viewable from the Bucksport waterfront. The display is sponsored by the Friends of Fort Knox and coincides with the Bucksport Chamber of Commerce's annual Ghostport activities, Saturday, Oct. 20. Two additional sponsors of the fireworks are the Atlas fireworks company and WKIT radio, who will provide a musical simulcast during the fireworks display.

Volunteers interested in helping out are encouraged to contact the Friends of Fort Knox at 469-6553 or email  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . People interested in additional event information may go to the Friends' web site,
