Haunted walk at the shelter
I ended up going to the shelter last night to help out with the haunted walk through the woods they put on. It was the third year they were able to do this particular fundraiser. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to show up, so didn't sign up to be anything in particular but was able to help out at the coffee/cocoa stand for a few hours.
There was a wonderful turn out. It was a warmer night but there was a bit of wind so the cocoa was a big hit.
The shelter has a bunch of woods around it, and they were able to set up a 10 minute walk with several vignettes for a good fright. The tour guides wore glow sticks if there were kids in the group and they wanted to keep it tame. Still they had quite a few groups ditch before the end. One woman walked out and said it was so scary she peed her pants :) I said they should put that on the poster for next year :)
They had a young man who twirled a fire stick which was quite a hit. donated goodies to sell and a witch at the end giving out candy.
A good time was had by all, and I believe they raised almost $1000 (before incidentals)
all and all, a good night
