Halloween fun in Agassiz Harrison: check out the local spooks and scares

Bridal Falls, Kilby Historic Site, Agricultural Hall host family events

Fear-lovers and scaredy-cats alike can enjoy Halloween in Agassiz Harrison with haunted houses, costume contests, bake sales and more. There’s no shortage of spooky all-ages this week so the Observer rounded up some of the best options to put some extra fun into the Halloween season.

The Haunting at Bridal Falls

Reports of UFO abductions from the Bridal Falls area have been flooding in this Halloween season.

The annual Haunting at Bridal Falls has been attracting fear-seeking visitors from across the Fraser Valley for years. Creator Jeannie Savard has been collecting spooky knick knacks, furniture, costumes and antiques for over 20 years and uses her finds and horror-loving volunteers to provide a truly terrifying and incredibly unique experience for visitors.

In fact, the haunted house is constantly evolving. Savard uses her endless creativity for evil, creating new themes and scenes to scare even long-time fans.

In this year’s new chilling UFO theme, giant spaceship has crash-landed into the building. Brave visitors will have to make their way through a black hole maze to escape alien abduction and experimentation. But before you face down the evil extra-terrestrials, be prepared to pass through a haunted doll room, mirror room, creepy carnival, butcher parlour, zombie cafe and more.

But the Bridal Falls horror house isn’t just for adults. Each night, before things get too creepy, there is Family Friendly Time from 4-6 p.m. that provides time for little ones to explore the haunted house with lights on and without scary characters or music.

But beware, because by 7 p.m., the UFOs will have landed.

Running from Oct. 5-31 at 53560 Bridal Falls Road, tickets cost $8 a person and the frights that await are well-worth the cost of admission. Savard picks a different charity to help with each haunted house and this year, 10 per cent of ticket profits will be donated to The Meadow Rose Society.
