Halloween Haunted House Tours for Local Charities, 2019


Holidays are commonly used as the catalyst for charity fundraisers, but decaying corpses, vampire bats, broomstick-riding witches, and grotesque guest-grabbing goblins are not usually on the guest list.

That all changed a few years ago when several Barrie and area families decided to use the Halloween season and a lot of initiative and hard work to garner funds, food, and awareness for organizations like RVH New Cancer Centre, Barrie Native FC Hunger to Hope & Grassroots Outreach Programs, Furry Friends Barrie, Hospice Simcoe, the Barrie Food Bank, and other charities.

Our crew from Five Points Media visited three of the interactive haunted houses, and we look forward to expanding future coverage. One house, supporting Furry Friends, had been closed by the Barrie Fire and Emergency Services, and we hope they can resolve the issues for next year.

Full details of the times and locations can be found at https://www.tourismbarrie.com/enewsletter/halloween-activities/haunted-house-tours. Thank you, Matt from Tourism Barrie, for their consent to use original artwork created by them in our opening sequence.

We would like to thank the following sponsors of the City of Barrie Network. These businesses show they care about our shared community by helping us to provide a not-profit-motivated truly local voice to you and your neighbours.
