Horne Lake gearing up for Halloween

Horne Lake Caves is offering some spooky weekends all through October in anticipation of Halloween.

What they’re calling their “Halloweekends” will run Saturday and Sunday on each of the four weekends leading up to and including the actual Halloween holiday weekend.

Starting October 8 and 9 and including Oct. 15-16, Oct. 22-23 and Oct. 29-30, visitors can take part in a Five Minutes of Fear video contest, ghost story cave tours and, say organizers, a very special haunted cave.

They invite “anyone with a video camera and a good sense of fun” to create their own five minute horror film.

The best and scariest of these will win a Vancouver Island Adventure Getaway for two, including a stay at Tigh-Na Mara.

All entries will be presented at the park’s new Cave Theatre for the public to vote on.

The 90-minute guided Ghost Story Cave Tours, $24 for adults, $20 for children, will offer a truly chilling experience, with visits to special places in the caves and even ghosts in the darkness.

Anyone who brings a carved pumpkin gets free admission to most Halloweekend events.

Call Horne Lake Caves at 250-248-7829 for more information.
