NOOPA begins Halloween hauntings tonight

The NOOPA Youth Centre will be transformed into a spooky, scary, Haunted Hospital this weekend.

The NOOPA Youth Centre will be transformed into a spooky, scary, Haunted Hospital this weekend.

In efforts not to conflict with Halloween next week the Boys and Girls Club is hosting its hauntings this Friday and Saturday evenings at NOOPA.

Instead of a haunted house, the clubhouse across from Safeway on Fourth Avenue will become the Haunted Hospital complete with surgery, maternity, loony bin, morgue and a few other surprise rooms, says youth worker Lora Fairbrother.

“We do intend to scare but if little ones come we will tame it down a bit,” Fairbrother says.

She says there will be a hospital waiting room and they will be letting people through in groups of 10 or so. She advises people with small children, five years and younger, to come in the early parts of the evenings.

There will be a guard at the entrance to warn the actors when the groups of little ones are coming through. Otherwise be prepared to be scared, and possibly for a small Halloween treat at the end.

Entrance fee to the Haunted Hospital is the donation of a non-perishable food item.

The Haunted Hospital hours will be from 7 to 10 p.m. this Friday and Saturday evenings, Oct. 24 and 25.
