STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Fears come alive this weekend at Colorado Mountain College's 20th annual "Screamboat: Chamber of Horrors."

A Halloween tradition, this year’s event promises to be a special one, according to organizer and CMC engineering professor Steve Craig.

For those who can muster the courage, “Screamboat” opens its doors from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26, Saturday, Oct. 27 and Wednesday, Oct. 31 on CMC’s Steamboat campus.

Students from CMC’s Sky Club and engineering program will be playing the roles of deranged aliens, clowns, vampires, chainsaw murderers and just about any kind of scary character Craig and the students could come up with.
