Looking for work this fall? Valleyfair is looking for 600 people to staff its annual Halloween attractions.

The Shakopee theme park is looking for more seasonal staff for its ValleySCARE festivities, which includes its child-friendly Great Pumpkin Fest and its adult scarefest the Halloween Haunt.

It will be holding open interviews for the positions, which range from character actors, ride attendances, and food and drink vendors, on Sept. 7 and 14 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Those aged 18 and above can become ride operators or security officers, which pays $14 and $15 respectively, while those under 18 can work during the day at The Great Pumpkin Fest.

Other perks of the job include free park admission, tickets to ValleySCARE for friends and family, and an employee appreciation buffet at the end of the season.

ValleySCARE opens on Saturday, Sept. 21 and runs through Sunday, Oct. 27.

You can apply online at Valleyfair.com/jobs.
