It's the spookiest time of the year and it's time for some Halloween fun. Get ready to tell a scary story or visit a haunted house.
Are you brave enough to visit a haunted house?
443 Draycott Street, Coquitlam V3K 5K1
For a number of years now, the family at 443 Draycott Street in Coquitlam have bravely set up spooky Halloween displays in and around their own house. The family puts together a Haunted house for everyone from small children to adults to enjoy. The event, while gives some freaky entertainment to the community, is also a fundraiser for the Children's Charity, Variety.
What does it cost?
The spooky display opens on October 20, 2017 and goes from 6:30 to 9:00 PM and is wheelchair accessible. And the cost to enter is a donation of whatever you can afford. All funding from this event goes to Variety to support children with a disability.
What will you see?
The house features a ton of great Halloween displays. Make sure you don't get caught in any giant spider webs, or run into any ghosts or ghouls. With creepy music playing eerily in the background and pumpkins, lights and lasers in every corner, you will definitely get a shiver down your spine. If you weren't in a spooky Halloween mood, this family-fun event will certainly get you ready to face the spookiest night of the year.
