Mission Arts Council presents ‘A Tribute to the Walking Dead’

Haunted attraction runs from Oct. 17 to 31 at Mission Raceway Park

Halloween is a favourite time of year for many, but for the Mission Arts Council it is a way of life.

It’s the third year in a row that the MAC has hosted a haunted attraction and this year they’ve partnered with the Mission Raceway Park to present “A Tribute to the Walking Dead.”

The haunt will be held at the race track and will encompass many favourite scenes from the Walking Dead TV show, but you don’t need to be a fan of the show to enjoy this scary event – you just have to love the element of surprise.

Be prepared to be scared by things that go bump in the night, hands reaching out to grab you and the dead coming to life.

The haunt is made possible through many hours of planning and organizing and a cast of dedicated volunteers comprised of high school students earning their volunteer hours for graduation, MAC staff and local citizens.

Generous community donations make the elaborate sets and props possible.

This event is a fundraiser which directly supports keeping art alive in the community and offers a venue for local artists and budding actors to come together and create magic. The Haunted Attraction runs from Oct. 17 to 31 from 7-9 p.m. at the Mission Raceway Park.  The admission is $10 per person, children 8-13 must be accompanied by an adult and no admittance for children 7 and under.
