If you’re looking to be scared or just have some fun Halloween night in Williams Lake there’s no shortage of spooks to keep you and the entire family screaming.
Immediately after school gets out Wednesday Wayne Lucier, political advisor with the Cariboo Chilcotin Metis Association, lets ghosts, goblins and other ghoulish creatures invade his home and yard at 717 Ninth Ave. when he and the association host a haunted house.
“We’ve been doing this seven years now,” he said, noting admission to the haunted house is by donation and will go to Jubilee Place.
“Little kids, I’d advise to bring them when the sun’s still shining. Once it gets dark we’re going to be scaring whoever we can and we have a blast. Between the life-sized mannequins that I have and real people it’s hard to tell who’s real and who’s not.”
The CCMA haunted house goes until 8 p.m.
If you’re downtown stop by Karen’s Place restaurant with the kids. She’ll be giving away hot chocolate and free goodie bags to all who dare enter her haunted house.
“I’m closing the restaurant down so I can have fun with the kids,” said Karen Browne, owner of Karen’s Place. “You’re going to walk in the front door and you’re going to start being scared right from there and it’s going to be a scary haunted house.”
Karen’s Place haunted house goes from 5 to 9 p.m.
Once you’ve wrapped up trick or treating head over to the Stampede Grounds as the city will light its annual Halloween bonfire at 7:15 p.m. At 7:45 p.m. the fireworks are scheduled to begin.
Additionally, the Lion’s Club will be selling hot dogs and hot chocolate. Williams Lake resident Ken Sheen has also carved a log sculpture pumpkin to use for the fireworks.
Just south of Williams Lake in 150 Mile House the 150 Mile House Volunteer Fire Department is hosting its annual Halloween celebration.
The event, which features fireworks, hot dogs and hot beverages, kicks off at 6:30 p.m. at the 150 Mile House Volunteer Fire Department.
