What are you doing October 21 & 22? If you are looking for a truly screaming good time plan to visit R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum for the 22nd Annual “Spooktacular” located at 751 Highway 97B, Salmon Arm. Gate admission is $8.00 per person. Gates open at 5:00pm for this family fun haunting event.
As dusk falls on the Village, strange shadows and ghostly figures appear as the Spooktacular magic commences. Brave children and the not so faint hearted can wander the not so scary “Storybook Path” full of rhymes, fairytale stories and treats. Local storytellers will spook you senseless with not so scary stories for the little and big goblins in Mt Ida Church which has been supernaturally transformed for “Tales from the Crypt.”
Wander the Village and you will discover Cadaver Cemetery where lost souls are prowling the night. You have been warned, watch out for the Grim Reaper, skeletons, witches and other frightening ghouls. You never know what super natural spirits will appear!
Visit the Mystical Fortune Teller and she may answer all your secrets, predict your future or call the spirits to revel what your future holds. If you are feeling a bit under the weather, an appointment with the Menacing Mad Scientist and a diagnosis in his electric chair is sure to make you scream. If amusements are what you seek, test your skills at games of chance at the “Hocus Pocus Midway”. Take home a spine tingling memory with a visit to Felts Photo Booth and have your picture taken for $5.00.
Beware! If you venture to far and cross the bridge of “Last Hope” you will find yourself on “Shady Lane”. Chills, thrills and villains await you as you prowl the boardwalk of the Montebello Building. Shops have transformed into blood curtailing, bone chilling shops of horror. Mayhem awaits you; this is only for the brave of heart.
Clowns are no laughing matter! Do you think you are fearless enough to venture through the Fraser Avenue haunted house? Police are pleading for the end of evil clown sightings. Hysteria has reached a fever pitch! You have been warned! Do not linger, keep your pace on a hair rising adventure through the Haunted House.
There is nothing like a moonless night to get your blood pumping and heart racing if you have the courage to wonder the Spook Trail. There are haunts around every corner stocking you in the forest where phantoms and ghouls are waiting. Beware – you never know what unearthly magic beckons your fate and where the howling may lead you!
When you’re ready for a break from all the horrifying thrills, enjoy hot dogs, hot chocolate, popcorn and mini donuts by the fire. Rest your brooms and visit the “RIP Coloring Room” and have your face painted, make a fun “Haney” craft or colour a picture to take home. You never know what you might unearth at Spooktacular.
Mark the 22nd Annual Spooktacular on your calendar – this is one after-dark Halloween event that you do not want to miss! For more information call 250-832-5243, visit our website www.salmonarmmuseum.org or find us on facebook.com/Haneyheritage. Ghouls and ghosts must be accompanied by an adult over 19.
