CORNWALL, Ontario – The third annual Ghost Walk for Charity is returning for another year.

The annual haunted house charity fundraiser opens officially on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 1400 Vincent Massey Dr.

The 25,000 sq. ft. haunted house is one of the biggest indoor haunted houses in Canada according to its organizers.

This year, the Ghost Walk will support three charities, Big Brothers/ Big Sisters Cornwall, Maison Baldwin House, and Habitat for Humanity.

The popular event saw thousands come out to get a good scare, and the event organizers are hoping for another successful haunted house this year.

The Ghost Walk this year is themed on the film Psycho and the Bates Motel featured in the movie. Around 30 to 40 volunteers helped to make the event possible.

“It takes hours and hours,” said exhibit designer Nicole Easton. “We’ve been here everyday for over a month.”

The Ghost Walk runs from Oct. 17, 18, 19, 23, 24 and 25 with family friendly non-scare hours from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. and full scare from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

On Halloween night, the Ghost Walk will be open from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for children 12 and under. There’s also a family pass available for $25 (two adults and two children).

Tickets can be purchased at the door.
