Though the pandemic has put a nail in the coffin of certain Halloween festivities, others are still very much alive and well.
Tourism Harrison recently announced the Agassiz-Harrison Museum is hosting “Spooky History,” running until Halloween Wednesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This especially macabre yet family-friendly display showcases steampunk and “Mad Max” gear, plague doctor masks, a haunted parlour and much more. A scary selfie station is available for use for a $2 donation.
On Thursday (October 15), the District of Kent Comunity Recreation and Cultural Centre announced Agassiz’ Historical Haunt. The CRCC offers a COVID-19 safe environment for trick or treating. Costumed characters can have their pictures taken at the professional photo booth and walk through the Historical Haunt to see decades of spooky history revolving around Agassiz. Treat bags are available at the end.
The Historical Haunt runs from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Halloween, and registration opens Friday, October 16 at noon. Pre-registration is required and can be done online at kentbca.ca/rec, in-person at the CRCC or by calling 604-796-8891.
