Fright Fest what if

What if the Gurnee Marriott's Great America from 1976-1980's had its own Fright Fest like the current Six Flags format has?

Was Labor Day weekend always the weekend when the 2 MGA parks would be open daily for the Summer before being reduced to weekends only for the rest of the season until the end of September and start of October?
