The event will transform a part of the park into a haunted carnival with scares, treats and interactive activities for all the guests.

CBS4 spoke with circus co-founder Aurelio Leyva, who said after last year’s cancellation due to the pandemic, bringing  the community together once again through fun and a few scares is something many have been waiting for.

“It’s for all ages, that’s what makes it great. But the best part is that it’s interactive,” he said. “There’s a lot of experiences here in Miami. There’s a lot of haunted houses, and you can come in and get scared. This is a great event because of the interaction you have with the performers and all the animators that we have here.”

It opens on Friday and runs through Halloween.
