An all-volunteer production organized by the Rotary Club of Sammamish, Nightmare at Beaver Lake turns pure dread into good deeds by pouring all its proceeds back into the community. Established in 2004, the annual attraction started as a project for the city's teenagers, and every October since, terror has descended upon Beaver Lake Park. Today, the still-growing site winds visitors through a sinister combination of indoor and outdoor scenes, including a march through the woods. Around every corner, costumed actors hide and threaten to pop out to scare passersby and disrupt their conversations about who would make the sexiest vampire.
