Get into the Halloween spirit, and come to Atwood for some fun! The second annual Atwood Witches Walk will be held on Saturday, Oct. 20 and 27. The festivities start at dusk and run through the evening.
There are three loops of the trail for all ages. “Spooky” is just over half a kilometre, is stroller-friendly and is suitable for scaredy cats of all ages.
“Scary” is .82 kilometres, encompassing “spooky” with the addition of some more screams. It will contain enough scream-inducing excitement for the more adventurous.
“Insanity” is about 1.2 kilometres, encompassing most of the first two trails with lots of extra thrills and chills. It is only suitable for those who want to be frightened. You may want to bring a fresh set of underwear for after you’re done.
The festivities start at the Elma Memorial Community Centre parking lot in Atwood, and continue into 15 acres of hardwood bush that has been transformed into a Halloween wonderland of fright. There will be cider and hot dogs for sale at the head of the trail and don’t forget a flashlight.
Donations will be accepted at the door. All proceeds will be given to the Elma Logan Recreation Complex Phase 2 Expansion Fund.
Organizers are still looking for high school students looking for their volunteer hours to help set up, clean up, and be part of the action in the bush.
