Huble Homestead Offers Halloween Fun
Prince George, B.C. – The Huble Homestead has been quiet since shutting down for the season on Thanksgiving Day and that pause in activity has presented the perfect opportunity for all things spooky and creepy and living in the shadows to take over the site, 40 kilometres north of town.
And you and the family have an invitation to visit the homestead from 3 this afternoon until 8 pm tonight to take in all of the fright and fun at the annual Halloween Spooktacular event. “Spooksperson” Nicole Krizmanich says “we’ll be offering pumpkin carving with one pumpkin per family which they can carve and then take home with them at the end of the night.”
“We also have crafts available in the barn and we’ll be running costume contests in the Welcome Barn starting at 6:30, and we have three different age groups for that.”
“We have the Haunted Maze, a spooky graveyard and we have our House of Horrors tours. Now we don’t recommend anybody under the age of 12 go in to see it. That is sort of the scary, spooky part. Everything else is very family-oriented except for those haunted house tours. And finally, we have a magician who will be doing magic shows in the animal barn.”
Admission to the site is $10 per family, and there is an additional charge of $3 for those wanting to go through the House of Horrors.
Krizmanich says visitors are welcome to show up in costume, or not. “They can show up however they like, we have a blend. Usually people will get the kids all dressed up in their Halloween finery, but we’ve also had people come without a costume and you don’t need one to be allowed in. But we do have those costume contests for the kids starting at 6:30.”
She says staff has been very busy over the past twelve days sprucing the site up for this special final event of the year. “We’re really hoping people come out and we’re encouraging them to wear waterproof footwear because it is a bit wet out there and they should also bring flashlights because it can get quite dark.”
