Guests are asked to bring at least 2 non-perishable food items, which will be distributed through a local food pantry to help local residents impacted by the pandemic.
Dates: To Be Announced.

The Haunted Shack Info
In operation since 1997, this amateur haunted house has grown into an effects-filled, 1500-square-foot walk-through maze that takes 6-8 minutes to walk through. The look of the maze changes from year to year, depending on the theme (everything from killer klownz to Dia De Los Muertos). The Haunted Shack went on hiatus in 2007 and 2018, due to time constraints, but so far shows no signs of retiring permanently.
