Where nightmares are born…
This year marks the 4th year of the Dunbar haunted house. It has come a long way from its humble beginnings. The first year featured a few hanging props on the front of the house and a graveyard in the drive way. That year approximately 50 to 100 people from the Neighbourhood came by. What a difference a few years makes, as last year thousands came through the haunt and in the process nearly $20,000 was raised for charities.
The hosts do not charge as admission is by donation. All proceeds are divided equally between the following charities: 1) BC Burn Fund; 2) VPD Union Charitable Foundation and 3) BC Childhood Cancer Parents’ Association.
Having gone last year I was extremely impressed with the quality and setup of the house. There were lineups around the block. Lets just say I was extremely impressed and scared many times. Definitely worth the wait (roughty 30 minutes). The house features live actors at night. For families with children you are encouraged to bring them for a day visit.
As host Brad Leith describes:
