HANTSPORT, N.S. – The Haunted Churchill House at HMCC is decidedly very spooky, and perhaps a little too scary for younger kids.
But kids got a chance to check out the creepy historic mansion with a decidedly tamer atmosphere – including some candy and bouncy castles outside for good measure - on Oct. 22.
Martin Gillis plays the dead sea captain of the Flying Princess, whose fate was sealed during a mysterious gale. It’s a story that weaves throughout the haunted house experience.
But Gillis put on a much friendlier demeanour as kids from ages two to 10 worked their way through the historic mansion.
Luke Miner, a young stowaway, accompanies the captain on the ghoulish tale.
Parents and children alike were all smiles as they worked their way through the house, grabbing piles of candy as they went.
Although many families came from the Hantsport area, others made the trip from further up the Annapolis Valley as well.
The last chance to take in Haunted Churchill House is on Oct. 27 – 28. Tickets are $10. Proceeds from the event are invested back into HMCC’s programs and maintenance.
