THUNDER BAY – ENTERTAINMENT – Fort William Historical Park will again host two of the most popular Halloween events in Northwestern Ontario: Haunted Fort Night and Kid’s Halloween Hoot. Frightening scenarios formulated by devious minds will transform the Fort into chillingly haunted territory…
Haunted Fort Night has been offered for about two decades, traditionally selling-out year after year. It features a new theme or story line each Fall. However, due to startling scenes, Haunted Fort Night is not recommended for children under the age of 12.
Anyone who loves a hair-raising scare will enjoy the award-winning Haunted Fort Night!
The event will be held most Thursdays to Sundays, from October 2 to October 31, from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m, rain or shine. Admission price (for all ages): $15, including HST. Tours last approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. Adults only tours are available.
Kid’s Halloween Hoot caters to children 12 years old and under. Youngsters are encouraged to arrive in their Halloween costumes and enjoy spooky crafts, trick or treating, storytelling, scary adventures, a haunted maze, a scavenger hunt, and other fun and yucky activities. New this year will be a Dragon Tower bouncy castle with a slide.
Kid’s Halloween Hoot will be held every Saturday and Sunday, October 3 to October 31, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine. Admission prices: adults, $5; youth (6 to 12 years old), $10; kids, 5 years old and under, free. (Prices include HST.)
“The Fort’s many historical buildings are a perfect setting for a spooky good time for the whole family,” says the Fort’s General Manager, Sergio Buonocore. “Haunted Fort Night is always being updated with new ways to be terrified, and our Kid’s Halloween Hoot is a fun and completely safe event that children will love.”
