HALLOWEEN WEEKEND- FREE & CHEAP EVENTS (October 31-November 2)

42417-Happy-Halloween-From-The-Peanuts

BOO!
Happy Halloween Moms and Dads! I have listed some fun places to take the kids if you want more than your regular door to door trick or treating.
My kids are afraid of the haunted houses in the area, so we will not be venturing to these attractions 🙁 Maybe next year they will be more brave.
Be cautious with your kids and remember to safely inspect their candy bags before they dig in.
Have a great weekend.

The Thornhill Woods Haunted House is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year. Since October 2004, we have been transforming the outside of our home into a creepy Haunted House in celebration of Halloween. Our front yard becomes a very detailed cemetery along with a nightmarish walk through Haunted House in our driveway.

We are aimed at making our neighborhood a fun filled experience, during the Halloween season. Our yard haunt is free of charge for everyone’s viewing pleasure, but we request a minimum $2.00 entrance fee to go through our Haunted House with all proceeds benefiting Sick Kids Foundation.

Come face your fears and phobias this Halloween…If you dare!!!

This event is Weather Permitting!
