SOLEDAD — Scary clowns, witches, aliens, dolls and more took over the Soledad-Mission Recreation District last weekend for “Nightmare on Walker Drive Fright Walk,” bringing an additional scare to South County residents.
Destiny Martinez played one of the clowns in the clown room. She participated in the “Fright Walk” because she wanted to experience the event and work with others who enjoy this type of environment. Joining Martinez as a clown for the event was Alicia Vassa.
Moving through the maze through the Soledad-Mission Recreation District, the maze participants came across a witch, Faith LeValle.
“I’ve done this for the past two years and I wanted the experience again,” said LeValle. “I love scaring kids.”
The next scare in the maze came from a bloody scary teddy bear played by Salvador Meza. Meza said that he likes to scare kids and wanted to hang out with his fellow high school students.
“My character pops out and tries to scare maze goers and gives them a scroll that guides the goers to where they need to go to next,” he said.
A jack-in-the-box made an appearance in the maze, played by Jahaira Morales.
“This is a great opportunity to get my community services hours,” said Faustino Zamarripa. “The people around this community and part of this event are pretty nice. We get along with each other really well.”
Zamarripa played an alien escaped from prison.
This was the third annual “Nightmare on Walker Drive,” which took place over three nights, Oct. 26-28.
