You’re invited to take a walk through the haunted garden at Tees.

For the tenth and last time, PJ’s Plantation is opening their Haunted (green)House Oct. 25-28 to the public.

Created by owner Jody Fowler, the haunt located within PJ’s two greenhouse bays is truly family-oriented, steering clear of anything gory or particularly grotesque and instead is more “startle-scary.”

One section is a walk through for those looking to get spooked, but a separate section features games, crafts, displays and other activities that are fright-free.

In the past, they’ve seen an average of 80-100 visitors per night, marking it as one of the best rural haunts for the family – and the food banks for which they collect  food donations for.

“The generosity of the visitors coming to the haunted house has been nothing short of amazing,” said Fowler in a letter to the Lacombe Globe. “We collect so much food that we disperse the amount among three local communities’ food banks.

“It’s been a lot of fun – both for the volunteers and the visitors.”

In the past, the Haunted (green)House has taken on many themes, from pirates, medieval castles to a western ghost town and a menagerie of past themes as well.

The Haunted (green)House  is located on the southeast corner of Hwy 12 across from Tees and R.R. 24-0 (look for the blue sign that says 40331 R.R. 240). It will be open to “victims” (visitors) from 7 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. Oct. 25-28.

Admission is free, but non-perishable food donations are appreciated.
