• Fright Nights at the PNE

    I am not a huge fan of things that go bump in the night but Pete loves them so this past Sunday we found ourselves at Fright Night.  Fright Night happens every October when the PNE fairgrounds are converted into a big haunted playhouse.  The tickets were a bit pricey – $28/ adult but we bought them online for $25 each.  We went late (at around 9pm) and it was busy but still fun.  We had a great time people watching in the line up.  It is definitely a younger demographic at this event as I am sure we were the only people in line who could legally buy our own beer but the vibe was super fun. 

    There are a variety of theme haunted houses for you to visit.  Inside each house the mood is super creepy and you will scream when things/ people/ creatures pop out at you.  I can’t image touring these haunted houses if you are high It could be dangerous for you and the poor student actors who are poorly paid to make you scream!  (although some of our line up friends were up to the challenge – there was enough “skunk” in the air to ensure none of us would pass an Olympic drug test). 

    Before leaving, we grabbed a bag of the requisite mini donuts and headed for home.  It was a fun/ scary date night. 

    Fright Night runs until Oct 31st.
