If you’re looking for some spooky fun for the entire family this Halloween season, head over to the Haunted House in Mount Shasta.
The Haunted House will be open Oct. 28-31 at the Mount Shasta Community Building on Alder Street from 5 to 9 p.m.
The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party will occupy the bottom half of the building for younger kids. For $2, food and refreshments will be served, including hot dogs, hot chocolate and apple cider.
Themed characters, games and other surprises will keep youngsters entertained. Goody bags will be given out to all who attend.
Upstairs, those in search of a good scare can enjoy the Haunted House maze, complete with unimaginable horrors and scares.
“There will be moving parts, people jumping out. It will be very, very scary,” said Mount Shasta Chamber executive director Marie Wells.
Wells recommends only adults and older children who are ready to be thoroughly scared should brave the Haunted House.
There will also be a scarecrow contest. Entries are due by 6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 31. The contest is open to all ages, and prizes will be awarded by Black Bear Diner.
Cost of entry is $2 or $1 with the donation of a canned food item, which will be donated to the local food pantry.
The Haunted House is sponsored by the Order of the Eastern Star, the Mount Shasta Chamber of Commerce, the Mount Shasta Police Department, the Mount Shasta Community Resource Center, the Mount Shasta Five Star Kiwanis and the Black Bear Diner. Proceeds from the Haunted House will go support community projects.
