JACKSONVILLE – The Jacksonville Sharks will hold the team’s annual “Halloween in June” theme night this Saturday, June 22, when the Sharks host the Cleveland Gladiators on Sea Best Field at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m.

Fans are encouraged to dress up in a Halloween costume to celebrate the holiday a few months early. In addition, The Dungeons Haunted Attractions, a unique haunted experience based in Green Cove Springs, will be on hand to enhance the atmosphere inside the arena. Fans can enjoy a haunted house experience specifically designed for this week’s Sharks game.

"Everyone loves Halloween, so to do it twice a year is even better," Sharks Managing Partner Jeff Bouchy stated. "It is truly one of our favorite theme nights and having The Dungeons Haunted Attractions is going to be awesome. Everyone needs to wear their favorite costume and get ready for some tricks and treats!"
