After drawing about 1,000 visitors last weekend, the Cannington Haunted Trail is firing back up Friday and Saturday (Oct. 25 and 26).
The annual event has grown considerably over the years, starting as a single night and adding a number of frightening new features.
This year, there are three attractions:
Ever since old, deranged Charlie dug up those graves a few years back, the town of Cannington has never been the same. Locals still talk about the night the spirits took revenge on Charlie, chasing him into the nearby forest to redeem his fate. It’s rumored that the spirits still haunt the woods. Many locals have reported hearing eerie noises…weeping, wailing, screaming. Others have reported sightings of the spirits, in their darkest, most evil form, still angry with the disturbances Charlie caused.
Despite the warnings from officials, every year near Halloween, a crowd gathers to see for themselves. Silly, silly fools…
Once an over-crowded psychiatric ward of the Ridges Hospital where the most disturbed patients were kept under lock and key. Now, sordid remains of history long forgotten. Ward 3 gained its reputation from a series of reports documenting brutality and abuse of its patients. After decades of mistreatment, retaliation and horrific incidents witnessed by authorities, Ward 3 closed its doors. At least that’s what the townspeople thought.
Pitch. Dark. Maze. But don’t worry – you won’t be alone.
As organizers are expecting as many as 1,000 visitors each night, advance tickets are recommended.
They cost $15 and can be purchased through EVENTBRITE.
