It’s back! Milton will once again hear the moans of vampires and chills of fright as it braces itself for the 7th annual Milton Haunted House held inside Milton Mall.
 
Milton Haunted House, located across from Stitches in the Milton Mall, is open to all ages on Saturday October 29th and Sunday October 30th from noon to 5pm.
 
“We have played host to the Haunted House since 2011,” said Jenifer Sim, the Marketing Director at the Milton Mall, who is a sponsor for the event. “When I first came across it, it was set up in tents at one of the summer events in Milton and was blistering hot. I thought that it would be amazing to get it moved to the mall and have it happen at the same time as the mall’s annual Mallowe’en Spooktacular that we run for children.”
 
Entering its seventh year, the initiative has raised over $60,000, which goes towards Milton District Hospital Foundation (MDHF), to help with the purchase of new medical equipment and facility improvements. The goal is to raise $10,000 this year.
 
Keeping the Milton Haunted House fresh and new each year is an enjoyable challenge for event organizers. “Every year we look at adding new surprises and scenarios so you never know what you will be confronted with when you enter.” said Milton Haunted House organizer Rick Di Lorenzo. “We try to leverage the creative talents of all our volunteers in coming up with new and thrilling ideas while always keeping it customized for the audience so it’s all out frightful when adults enter but more mild and tame for when children come in.”
 
The Milton Haunted House first started out as a Hawthorne Village neighbourhood attraction in 2006, set up at the home of a local Milton Town Councillor. When it grew in size and popularity, threatening to take over both the basement and garage, the councillor’s spouse gave an ultimatum, either it or the councillor had to move to a new home.
 
In addition to the Haunted House tour, there are penny raffles, silent auctions, pumpkins, face painting and super hero meet and greets.
