ESSEX JUNCTION — The first 300 people to attend Nightmare Vermont on Friday received free admission thanks to SeaComm Federal Credit Union.

The gesture was powered by the SeaComm Pay-It-Forward Program, which enables the credit union’s staff to perform random acts of kindness in the communities it serve. 

Nightmare Vermont, an all-volunteer event with live actors, interactive scares and special effects, took place all weekend long at the Champlain Valley Exposition. The thrilling Halloween show returned to in-person performances after being virtual in 2020.

Committed to supporting local charities and giving back to the community, this year, Nightmare Vermont donated $32,000 to help upkeep the grandstand at the Champlain Valley Expo ahead of the 2021 Champlain Valley Fair. The show has also donated to Camp Exclamation Point, Women Helping Battered Women, hurricane relief, Northeast Haunters’ Scholarship, Del’s Ride and Essex Chips.
