A haunted house at Mosier Community School proved horrifying enough to demand an encore this Friday. The ghoulish fun runs from 5-10 p.m. at the school’s gym; entry is $5 and is “not for little kids” due to the scare factor. Above, Violet Mittelstadt, an HRV student and Mosier School drama club alumni, poses for a shriek at the sight of a scarecrow in the maze — the finished product took volunteers days and nights to build starting from scratch.
Trick or Treat falls on Saturday, and there’s plenty happening Friday night, too.
