Get ready to get scared for a good cause! If the Mare Island Shoreline Preserve wasn’t scary enough at night this time of year…come out to our annual “NightMARE Island” The last of our fall fundraisers, it’s scheduled for 8 nights, October 21-23 (Friday – Sunday) (Plus Monday, Halloween!), & 27-31 (Thursday – Monday, Halloween!). Open from 5-9pm each evening.
The Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Trust is a 501C3 non-profit, and this is the final fall fundraiser for the Preserve.
Your host again for the event – “The man with one foot in the world of the living and the other foot six feet under…” is THE UNDERTAKER, and he has so much planned for your visit! Attendees are encouraged to bring their own flashlights and come in costume. This is an all-ages event, though some of the attractions may be more suited to the 13 and older crowd, and they will be marked.
