A Fright Fest Extravaganza
Nightmare on Romscho Street a Huge Success
Thousands came out to the Nightmare on Romscho Street, which has now
become an annual event. This three day, labor intensive fright fest raises
money for the Bethpage Community Foundation and food for the needy.
Great music by the One Night Stand Band, candy for all the trick or
treaters, raffle prizes and definitely a fright or two made this event jam
packed with spectators looking for some Halloween fun.
So much hard work and effort goes into this event. Everyone involved should be
congratulated on hosting such an awesome yet frightening event that has now
become a Bethpage Halloween tradition for the young and young at heart.
