North Vancouver scares are popping up all over the place, and at the forefront of them is The Valley Haunt.
- VanDusen Glow in the Garden returns for Halloween 2017

- 9 places to buy a Halloween costume in Vancouver
Created by horror-minded North Vancouver resident Karen Dietz, the haunt has gone from a few scary graves under the night sky to a full-fledged operation. What was initially meant only for the bravest of the young children in the area has gone on to become an event that enrols a whole lot of people, and scares a lot more.
Crazed figures wander the grounds, mad scientists pose in front of electrifying glass orbs like zombie Tesla’s, and an atmosphere of claustrophobic darkness settles over everything in sight.
Best and least scary of all, after its popularity grew startlingly quickly, Dietz made the decision to begin taking donations for the BC Professional Firefighters’ Burn Fund. Recently, they earned over $4,000.
That’s the amount to beat this year, folks.
