Haunted house north of Ladysmith raises money for youth bowling

The Huard family has decorated its Hallberg Road yard for Halloween and is accepting donations to support a Youth Bowling League.

Brave souls who enter the haunted house at 95-3560 Hallberg Rd. this Halloween night will come across this front wall.

For the past two years, Shandra, Lionel and K.C. Huard have celebrated Halloween by having a haunted house in their Hallberg Road yard.

Each year, they keep getting bigger and better, and they say this year is no exception.

This year, they start their haunt with the front graveyard and the fortune teller’s tent. Then with warning, visitors are allowed to tour the witches’ house and grounds by walking through more than 200 feet of covered tunnel, with creatures both static and animated.

One big change for the Huards this year is that they will be accepting donations.

“For the past two years, we refused donations because we do our haunted house for the love of Halloween and for the fun it brings to the children in our community, but this year, we felt that if we could raise money for a local group, why not take donations,” Shandra said in a news release.

The Huards will be accepting donations for the Youth Bowling League at Brechin Lanes in Nanaimo.

The Huards are located at 95-3560 Hallberg Rd. in the Timberlands trailer park.

“Because we are a park, the park manager actually blocks cars from coming inside so that it is safer for trick-or-treaters to go door to door,” noted Shandra.

The haunt will be open Oct. 31 from 5-9:30 p.m. Touring the haunted house is free of charge, and the Huards will be giving out treats to the younger children.
